Random comment, as I check your site today:

THANK YOU for putting copyright dates (and other publishing info) on your reviews. It makes me crazy to read a blogger’s positive thoughts on a book but then, when I try to get info on it in order to try to read it myself, I have no idea if it’s ten years old or just out. Not that it matters in terms of simply reading it, but, well, I’m a nerd and want my publishing info. So, thanks!
