I am always on the look out for more reviews so if anyone sends a link to me I will add it to this resouce. The only condition is that it must be possible to get to the review with one click rather than having to scroll down a page. I am particularly keen on finding reviews for books which have not got any as yet. You can email, or use the feedback form if you would rather remain anonymous.
