    Book Reivew Forum

    I know there's a thread on "books you are currently reading" in another forum. However, is there a chance to set up a book review forum where members can post reviews about books? It's always a mixed bag reading the reviews on Amazon and would introduce a lot of books that someone might not necessarily search for.

    What's everyone elses thoughts?

    I would absolutely support such a forum, I have just received 2 books from Amazon.com that I would love to review.

    Perhaps a Movies/Music/Books etc review forum?

    Yeah good idea, as long as you promise to keep Military Histories/Military training manuals/Military autobiographies to no more than 1 per week (unless it's ones I'm interested in of course) and an outright ban on the damn greek philisophical schools.

    Philosophy is okay, but only one thread (or review) per week.

    What's the difference between people who pray in church and those who pray in casinos?
    The ones in the casinos are serious.
