Listing of Reviews

Last night, I had a Good Idea (TM).

Since I started adding the other books in a series to my book reviews, I was finding I was having to troll back through my blog to find any previous reviews to link to. Wouldn’t it be a good idea to have a listing of all my reviews over on Lists and Such? And of course, if I was going to do that, wouldn’t two lists be better – one by author and one by title?

It’s taken me all day, but 247 books later, the lists are up.

I use the word reviews, but they vary from full blown reviews to a short single sentence.  A few (like one that simply read “Ditto”) I left out altogether. Most are a short comment or paragraph as often I got behind and did a summary at the end of the month. But at least it’s a way to check a rating or get a quick feel for what I thought about a particular book.

This year, I’m hoping to (or maybe dreaming of) managing a full review for each book I read. Here we are at the middle of February and so far, so good. I’m only one behind and plan to do that tomorrow.

Hi Kerry,

Just in case you don't have enough books to review, there are 4 more available in my series now ;) You did a very nice review of Wizard's Bane. Would you like books 2, 3 and 4? (and 5's due out in May).

Get a hold of me on the Fantasy Favorites's list and let me know.

I think your lists sound like a great idea.
I have not reviewed that many yet, but I may have to do something like that one day.

You are amazing! I'd love to do this, but there is no way I'd have the patience.
