Prepare for the Onslaught

One of the problems with having almost 300 book reviews on the BookBanter website is providing readers with the quickest and easiest way to find them.  So this was the Eureka! moment I had today: I’ll be posting all my book reviews as individual posts on this blog, with specific categories and tags.  That way I’ll be able to have them organized and categorized on the website so that they can be simply found.  It also gives me the option to make any changes or edits later on, once they’ve been posted, as well as providing links to allow readers to purchase these books, and include links to BookBanter interviews.  Plus I’ll be able to catch any typos I missed when I originally put the reviews up.

Now, after doing some calculating, there are currently 287 reviews on the BookBanter site, with 3 more due to go up for Episode 26 on February 15th, bringing the total to an even 290.  And if I want to get all reviews posted before the unveiling of the new site, or at least by the time of the unveiling, with 20 days left to go, that’s an average of 14.5 reviews per day.  I’m pretty sure I’m not going to necessarily be able to hit this goal, at least not every day for the next couple of weeks . . . but here goes.

Sacred GamesManaged to find a bargain price, first edition hardcover of Sacred Games by Vikram Chandra.  When this book came out its size (over 900 pages), the cover, and plot summary on the inside flap intrigued me, but then many books and other things got in the way and I never got round to reading it.  And now that I’ll be attending Writers with Drinks this coming Saturday, where Vikram Chandra will be performing, and finding Sacred Games for a good deal, I now have it in my possession to finally read it, and possibly get it signed.
