Update on Book Reviews

So, I clearly went off track with the summer. It’s a long story and will have to wait until we see each other face-to-face. Short summary: Act 1: went to Ireland, caught a cold from students, turned into major chest infection, kept me off the airplane to Seattle for VisCom… and basically meant I stayed in Ireland until late August. While that had its upside (the most relaxing extended vacation I have had since 2005), it meant not being where I could send anyone a book to review as those were all in the USA. Act 2: Returned to US and immersed in beginning of semester… which brings us to NOW.

We got a great response from the post made earlier — 44 respondents (THANK YOU!) Out of the original list of books, 16 have been assigned (emails and books to follow to those reviewers.) That leaves 3 books that still need a reviewer… and more will be coming in soon. So, if you didn’t get the review gig you wanted, see if any of these interest you. — Roxanne
