While looking over the SQL Blogger Rankings a thought crossed my mind:

Why not do something similar with books?

So, I have decided to create a new page with some widgets that display books related to various topics. Right now, there are two libraries to choose from, a technical library and a professional development library. In time I plan to add more, but I also want to actually read the books I decide to promote on my blog. So, that will take some time to get things added.

When I do have a new book to add, I will try to offer a review of the book here as well. Since the widget needs six books listed at a minimum, I need a couple of books in order to get a new shelf listed on the page. Bear with me, I will be able to get it done eventually. I do reserve the right to list a book I happen to own, or have access to, but have not actually read yet.

If you have a book you would like to see promoted, and can offer a quick review, just drop me an email and let me know. Please, no publishers! I only want feedback from actual database professionals. No offense to any publisher out there, but I am not looking to whore myself out at this point. Thanks anyway.
