cover-redhead-side-roadNote:  Each year I enjoy looking at the statistics for this website to see which reviews have garnered the most interest.  Reviews which have been on the site for several years have the advantage of popular recognition which newer books have yet to receive.  This year, in a big surprise, the first twenty books, in terms of reader interest, are evenly divided.  Ten books reviewed here are new to the site within the past five years, and ten books have had reviews on the site for six to ten years.

Here are the newer reviews, with links.  The older reviews will be posted in a separate list:
