Request

If it's not too much trouble, could you guys maybe put publication years in the labels?
I think it might be fun to look for reviews of books that have a similar dates, just for kicks.
Thanks,
Goedi

Sure, no problem. I've gone back and added in date labels for all my reviews. Here's a list:

Purgatorio and Paradiso by Dante Alighieri - written between 1308 and 1321

The Last Tycoon by F. Scott Fitzgerald - unfinished, published posthumously in 1941

Candide by Voltaire - 1759

The Persian Expedition by Xenophon - written between 379 and
371 BCE

Christie Malry's Own Double-Entry by B.S. Johnson - 1973

Franny and Zooey by J.D. Salinger - 1961

Crash by J.G. Ballard - 1973

Solaris by Stanislaw Lem - 1961

The New Atlantis by Francis Bacon - 1627

A Handful of Dust by Evelyn Waugh - 1934

Awesome, thanks!
See, now when I search 1961, I get two books off your list. And I think about what they have in common that reflects the time in which they were written/published.
Thanks.
This also reminded me that I wanted to check out the double-entry book.

at my blog I always add the year of publication. I wanted to follow the trend of my reads. To me I have read more books published between 2001 and 2010 than any other category.
