WorthyRead is a new UK-based literary blog that regularly publishes reviews of worthy new and old books. Its mission is to review not only current bestsellers, but also older, or more obscure books. In general, WorthyRead’s aim is to give the reader a general impression and “feel” of a book’s style and content. This month the site will begin posting some of my own reviews, beginning with Brian Appleyard’s alternative history of science, Understanding the Present, a book that first appeared in 1992 but is more timely than ever. If you love book reviews as much as I do, be sure to subscribe to WorthyRead’s regular RSS feeds.
