About this site
Unsorted

This is the section for Unsorted book reviews. To post your reviews to this category, please do the following:
  • If you are a Movable Type-user, please copy the below URL to the "URLs to Ping" when you create your entry, or (even better), create a Category called "Book Reviews" (or anything you like, as long as it relates to this category) and list this URL as an "URL to Ping" for the Category.
    http://www.jacobsen.no/cgi-sys/cgiwrap/anders/MT-2.21/mt-tb.cgi?tb_id=379
    
  • If you don't use MT, hang on tight - I'll try to create a form or something for you to use...
"Spamming" the directory will not be accepted. I'm fairly liberal as to what consitutes a book review, but please select the appropriate category is possible, and please submit only once. The "Unsorted" category should generally just be used if you can't find a suitable category for your review, or if you can't be bothered to set up multiple category-pings...

(Tip of the day: set up category pings for your most common categories and create a Category ping for "Unsorted" only when you have reviews outside your usual categories)

If you post in a language other than English, please indicate by writing the Language Name in the beginning of the Excerpt (for example: "[French] ...(your excerpt here)" ). Thanks!
