Popular Book Review Sites


Amazon - the site that wants to sell you books and a whole lot more - has excerpts of book reviews and sometimes whole book reviews from major newspapers and magazines built into information for a book. It also has reviews posted by the general public. You can't use any of this directly in a paper, but I use the reviews to get more information about a book. Amazon is a resource, but it's a starting point, not the finish line.
