It is too hot, and I am too burned out, to write anything either sensible or interesting, so I am not going to try. Just one note: Chris at Spiked Magazine has set up a site called free-new-books.com , a collection of all the books you can download or read online free from the web (legally). The site has categories and an rss feed . As Chris says: "I want books highlighted to me and pithy summaries of why they’re of interest. So that’s what I’ve tried to do with Free New Books. I hope to find a couple of books a week that are worth adding to the site." Seems like a fantastic resource with this added value of Chris’s editorial summaries.
