I like it when someone I know has already read a book that I’m thinking of reading—that way he or she can tell me if it’s good before I invest any time in it. We now have a way that you can rate books and write a brief review of the books, movies, and books on CD that you’ve checked out or downloaded. Then when somebody else goes to the public catalog and looks at the item details, your local reviews will be there! Cool, huh? So next time you come in, ask me to show you how!
