Directory of Book Reviews

Hey hi, yes, I am talking to you,

I am working on an index for the books I have read and the reviews I have written. So what happens is that whenever I read a book, I will write a review even if it is of 100 words. So here it is – the compilation of what I have done. You know this first draft has only taken me a week’s time and I was surprised with the number (197) as well as variety of books that I have read since I started this blog in Dec ’13.

So what do you think of this list? Should I improve it in any other way? Please let me know in the comments…Thanks in advance.
