Well, after giving it the old college try, I think posting former papers from college in this format is way too much bother! If I refer to them in future reviews or Firestarters, I’ll upload them here as single, very long pages, rather than a kabillion short blog entries.
That being said, as promised, here from the paper is the book list, which includes some truly fascinating titles. Enjoy! :)
