Where do I talk about books?! Silly question, I guess anywhere, but it either means we need a forum about books or there are too many forums already!!?? :lol:

It would be quite useful to have a separate place to review self sufficient(ish) related books.

Edited to add that it would be useful to have all the reviews in the same place so we could have a look through books that others have read.

Seeing that I have already once posted an (almost) book review, I can only support this suggestion!

I think a book section would be an excellent idea, though I do also feel that 22 sections already (not including the Compost Bin) is pretty confusing sometimes, trying to decide which section to post to. Maybe some of them could be conflated.

I don't think an extra one would be too bad............if Andy was OK we could give it a go!

I think this is a really good idea. I buy too many books already, and sometimes they are not as good as I thought they might be, so a reviews section would be useful.
