It’s been a weird couple of weeks, with a bunch of things to do. So, not as many reviews have gone up. No worries–I just finished one library book (Summer Knight by Jim Butcher) to hopefully put up a review

New Blogroll

The old blogroll got blitzed in the reorg, so I’m starting it anew. It’s mostly going to be links to other review sites, so please don’t ask for links to unrelated stuff. Anyway, that’s why it’s looking so sparse right

Taking a bit of a break…
