Are You Exploring Book Browse?

Recently, the Friends sponsored an amazing new resource for all PPLD card-holding members called BookBrowse. This is an online magazine and website that provides book reviews, author interviews, book previews, and reading guides. A tool that no book-lover should be without.

Fair warning though: browsing BookBrowse is addictive and with so many tools, books and insights you can get lost for hours!
