Book Reviews

I love books.  I have an extensive library and read voraciously.  Years ago I started reviewing books for Amazon.  I stopped doing that because I realized I was feeding a machine that was undermining local booksellers and compromising a way of life.  My practice today is to almost exclusively buy books through local bookstores.  If I read a review of a book I like or someone recommends something interesting, I email the title to the owner of my local book shop, Jessica's Book Nook, and he orders it for me.  I pay a little more for a book - but believe me it is worth it.

The goal of this section is to direct people interested in Shelley and his circle to books of interest. I will try to review as many of them as I can, but in other instances I may simply point you to books of outstanding importance that fall into the category of essential reading.
