Here's a new site I just learned about through a facebook posting (click on the link in this entry's title). It was established by Kraig McNutt, who runs the very enjoyable blogs the Battle of Franklin and the Civil War Gazette.
This new club will give members a chance to review at least one or two books per year, for reviews to be publishes on the site. Members can choose to be lead reviewers or panel reviewers, helping the lead reviewers on books.
I think I'm going to give it a try, as a panel reviewer, and hopefully the experience I've gained here in writing book reviews will only serve to help me. I admit I'll be a little bit nervous posting to this new club, but why not give it a shot.
It strikes me as a fascinating concept and I hope others see it and join it as well.
Good luck with this new venture, Kraig!
