The Best Reviews of 2017




I had planned on reviewing a book tonight for Wednesday Review, but unfortunately--- I am still reading the book.    So I thought with Christmas coming up, it would be a wise idea to look over what I reviewed in 2017 in case you are in need of some gift ideas or in need of something to put on your Christmas list.

I am including the Amazon link to items in this post.   I am not going to lie.   I get a very small percentage of money if you buy through the link.     It isn't enough to really talk about.  I think I have made $6.00 since January doing this.    However --   I am saving the money to keep this blog running (about $20 a year).  So if you do want to order something I recommended here and planned on going the Amazon route, then I would appreciate it if you go through the link.


These are in any order, but are things that I liked that I reviewed this year.


Books

Because I am a reading teacher and a writer -  I review books more than anything else on this site.  Here are some books that I read in 2017 that I especially enjoyed.  (These might not have been released in 2017)

  1. Hi friend,
    first: thanks for the amazing blog!
    Well, I found these wonderful gem on SoulSeek:

    The Beatles Lost Album - 2017 -
    320 kbps - Bootleg - NOT FOR SALE!
    Amazing rare and ultra rare unreleased Beatles songs.
    this is the best Beatles Bootleg so far, on best quality.
    The album had a great production and sounds like a George Martin/Jeff Lynne's production (as in the sensitivity to choose tracklist order, fix tracks, clean up, tracks transitions, cover art, etc.).
    The collection is incredibly complete of unreleased Beatles tracks (only few songs were left out: some covers/blues/jam with low quality-performance production).
    In short: unlike most bootlegs that are just a put together rarities, this album is very well-architected in its concept and you feel the pleasure of listening to a "lost classic Beatles album".Highly recommended! Enjoy :)

    So I put the album in We Transfer, you just click the link to download it:

    Happy Xmas!
