Announcing my new review site: bestbritishbios!

After months of pondering, procrastinating, and fretting, I am happy to announce that my new site, Bestbritishbios, is up! I've spent the better part of the last couple of days setting up the basics, and while I still have a lot of work left to do on it I'm ready to start the fun part of writing and posting my reviews. Much of the credit goes to a good friend of mine who's a professional web designer and walked me through some of the do's and don'ts of setting up a website. Without him I never would have gotten this far with turning my idea into an electronic reality.

 

I also want to thank everyone here who gave me feedback on my initial site design, as you helped me make what proved to be the best decision. And I want to give a special shout-out to Themis-Athena, who shared her hard-earned experiences with review websites. You gave me a lot to think about, and it's helped me decide what it was that I wanted to do with this.

 

So if you're interested in biographies of British monarchs, please bookmark my page and check back regularly. I'm planning to post 3-4 reviews a month, which with the number of biographies that I have to read means that I have a good 5-6 years of reading ahead of me.

Booknote: Appalachian Health and Well-Being
Appalachian Health and Well-Being - Robert L. Ludke,Phillip J. Obermiller,Richard A. Couto

Link to my review of this book. This review is a bit different. Since it is an academic text mainly to be used as resource, I am not rating it like I would other books. From my review:

 

"This note is a reference book review. We currently have this book in our collection at Hutchins Library; I saw it on our new reference books' shelf, and I decided to make this note both to help me better know this resource and to see if it can be helpful for our students here. In this note, I will mainly look at key features of the book, how it is organized, and why it may be useful and how."
