An idea for yet another section - maybe

All the talk of book writing has given me an idea for (yet) another niche section on the HUBB. What about book reviewing?

I'd love to hear more about the travel books people read, a punchy little review would be great, I wouldn't even care if the travel was by bike, donkey, llama, roller skate or pogostick; they can all provide inspiration on a wet night stuck indoors.

And of course, if Grant used the Amazon trackback service he'd even get a few pennies in his coffers if someone bought following a review, which would go to support the site we all know and love.

I suppose for now they could just go in the Bar, if anyone was interested. Of course maybe no-one but me would be.

Sounds good

Don't know where you put it but sounds like a good idea.

good idea - will look into how we can combine a book listing as we have on the current books pages, with a review capability - at first look very possible, will sort the logistics of actually doing it over the next few weeks. Should be able to do something like the equipment reviews we have now.

thanks!
