As the challenge progresses, participants’ reviews will be linked here. If you’ve reviewed a challenge book and don’t see a link to your review, please leave a comment with the specific address and I’ll add it!

  1. Hi Eva,

    I just finished my first book for the challenge – Asian Dining Rules for the culture/anthropology/sociology category. It is about ethnic food in America, but it contains quite a bit on the development of cuisines in different cultures and changes as they migrate onto American palates.

  2. Great job on getting the review directory put together! I finished a book in March, and I didn’t see a mr linky up yet (I know you haven’t been feeling well, too) so I figured I’d just post it here for ya. It’s in the category of memoirs/autobiographies. Here you go: http://heatherlo.wordpress.com/2009/03/15/review-slave/

  4. Memoirs – Diary of a Young Girl is strictly not a memoir, since it was not written as a remembrance. But I backups also.

  6. Just finished Marrying Anita, and I can’t decide if it’s more Culture/Anthropology/Sociology or Memoirs/Autobiography. Since I’ve already finished one in each category, I guess it doesn’t matter.
