What can I say? Reviews are a great excuse to get free books. My first book review appeared in the Newport News, Va., Daily Press.
My next two reviews were published on the genealogy section of my web site, fuzzo.com. The In Search of Your Asian Roots review was later revised and republished in the Winter 2000 issue of the FGS Forum, a magazine published by the Federation of Genealogical Societies.
More recently, I began using a Web site called LibraryThing to catalog my book, film, and music collection; then I joined its Early Reviewer program. Since then, I have begun putting book reviews on both LibraryThing as well as my blog, Notes from the Abyss review.
