"What should I read?"

Good question – not all books are worth reading.

Francis Bacon (1561-1626) wrote:

Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested: that is, some books are to be read only in parts, others to be read, but not curiously, and some few to be read wholly, and with diligence and attention.

How reviews help.

Book reviews help you assess whether to taste or swallow, or to chew and digest.

I'll add some reviews, and I invite others to provide reviews, for the benefit of all.

If you have a review you want to post let me know.
