Eithni’s Book Reviews:
A few here
Years ago I undertook to compile an Encyclopedia of all the Arts and Sciences practiced in Northshield. The concept was that this was to be a collection of beginner’s articles, aimed at providing a very basic introduction and a set of resources so that the reader could learn more if desired. Below are the entries compiled thus far. If you would like to contribute an entry on your favorite A&S topic, please refer to the guidelines and contact Eithni for details.
There are now several book-cataloguing sites available on the internet, but I have chosen to use LibraryThing. I have found it to be an easy-to-use and versatile website and the options for library voyeurism are wonderful. Please feel free to do some shelf-reading!
