Books Received - An Update

6th Jan, 2014

Listed below are the books received for review since the last update, which was back on 22 November 2013.

Twenty new titles, of which five have been written or edited by women, taking our final tally for the year to two hundred and seventy four  books, of which sixty three and a half have been written or edited by women (23%, marginally up on 22% in 2012).

Technically those figures don't include all the books received in 2013 as some get sent to Andy rather than myself, and he hasn't passed any on in a few weeks, but on the other hand some of them have been received since the year turned so we'll say it all cancels out. This is an inexact science.

Next "Books Received" post I'll start counting figures for 2014.

Standard Disclaimer: As ever, people are welcome to query me regarding the possibility of a review by writing to with the usual caveat that an expression of interest does not guarantee if or when a review will be done.
