The following is a list of all the books I read in June 2010. There are a lot as I was finishing up my thesis. Many of the books I re-read in preparation for my thesis defense. I did book reviews for some of them (which will be noted in the list) and the rest I did not. If there is a book on this list that I did not review but that interests you, I will do a review upon request.
To send in requests for reviews email me the title of the text you want reviewed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Make sure your subject line says "Book Review Request" so that I don't send it to my junk mail folder.
I can not guarantee when the review will be posted but I will write one up eventually. :) Here's the list for June:
