Books are conversations. I write in them, underline copiously, dog-ear pages, and note ideas for possible blog postings. Books feed this blog (See my post of Feb. 1, 2009: thirteen books cited on this blog.). The latest sources include these ten books. Among them I have assembled a handful of “blook reviews.”
