SITE MAINTENANCE:
You will note that several older pages are in transition – but rather than take the site down for maintenance I am leaving all the pages live and updating them on the web. This way, all the reviews remain available, and the navigation buttons still work, even if they are not yet resized. Additionally I am working on an index of reviews by AUTHOR to help you locate reviews more quickly. However, you can always utilize the search engine on the Reviews page and the Main Index. The site is re-indexed every weekend so add the latest reviews to the search engine database.

NEW RELEASES:
Visit our new release page and start your shopping list today! You will note that all books reviewed are now linked on our New Releases page as well as in the current and back issues and on the individual genre pages.

BLOG:
Visit the RRTBlog to see what Patti is up to – and what books she is giving away. If you are not on the RRTChatters loop, you are missing some great conversations – and prizes.
