The Librarian's Book Revoogle

These Google Pages date from before the upgrade of Blogger that allowed tagging. They remain a good way to find my earlier reviews, as I have not accomplished a full tagging of the backlog yet.

 Here are  the best books I have read in 2007.   Click on the titles to find my reviews.
