I wanted to plug, before I forget, the new and interesting reviews of books we have online. Up now is a look at Freedom’s Battle: The Origins of Humanitarian Intervention. We also have Guy Delisle’s new graphic memoir recalling heat and oppression in Rangoon, Burma. And I wrote a review of a new book of poetry by a wonderful poet named Elizabeth Spires. This is something we’re doing every week at City Paper‘s website. We believe books are important and we believe that people read. Please tell us what you think and add your two cents.
