Year Six: The Reviews

Time to start up another place to record reviews, I think…  A bit like the fiscal year, the Stuck-in-a-Book year rolls around every April – somewhere in the middle.  If you’d prefer to see all my reviews in one place (alphabetical by author) then have a little clickety-click in this direction.  That link is always up to the top of the right-hand sidebar, by the way.
