Reviews 2014

We’re hoping to hit the dried bundles of pulped paper hard this year, so we can talk about things other than unpublished manuscripts. A list of what we have absorbed (or not, they will go on the list too) will appear below.

A small caveat before we begin – because of the pressures on the time available for us to read, we are implementing a hundred-page tipping point. If a book is not taking us somewhere by the time the hundredth page is turned then it will be set aside.
