I have been thinking of creating a Reading Room for a while now. It simply isn't fair to recommend a book without telling you anything about it. This is what I did: the reviews will all be posted with a January 2000 date. This way, going to my January 2000 archives means going to my Reading Room. I have just posted my first review : of the book "Live. Art and Performance". I also changed the "Book of the Month" on the sidebar. It is now linked to the Reading Room, and not directly to Amazon, as it used to be (I know, it wasn't very nice of me, or very wise, since obviously nobody buys books they know nothing about).
