Reviewed books will be listed alphabetically by author's last name. Most books will be new--either published in 2004 or 2005--however, I will also be posting reviews of other books; books that I have either reviewed in the past OR books that I feel are worthy of recognition. More book reviews--contributed by friends and classmates--can be found under "Guest Reviews."
