I’ve been keeping track of what books I read for years. Here are lists set up before the Litt Review.
Interested in a book review?
I’ve had requests from several people for book reviews, so I’ve set up a portal for people to pay for reviews. If you want a review of your book, get in touch.
As always, if you’d like me to just read a book, email me with your suggestion.
