Summer & Fall 2006 Book Lists


After reviewing the Fall 2006 offerings from the various publisher’s catalogues, I created a multi-part listing of my personal recommendations. This post is intended to provide a summary of the publishers I listed, with links to the relevant original post. If publishing houses are missing it is because I have not yet looked through their Summer/Fall offerings.

My disclaimer: These are the books which I personally am looking forward to hearing more about and perhaps reading. This is in no way a reflection on what I think is going to be a big hit this fall nor am I suggesting that any author is publishing a “bad” book by not listing it here. At the time the lists were created, I had not read the books (except for a few instances and then a link to my review is posted).
