I am just curious; how does that page work?  it seems to only be updated every week or so.  It is also obvious that it does not necessarily show the books that have the most 'thumbs up's' on PBS. It appears that it always starts with a book that has 9 or 10 'thumbs up' when I have seen books with more than 10 that do not appear on that page.

The reviews are extremely helpful to me and have convinced me to choose some very wonderful books that I would not have read otherwise.

If you find the reviews helpful, you might try the "Hidden Gems" section of the forums too -- I've found a lot of interesting books that way.

I don't know how that page works; it does look like the reviews are very recent ones, perhaps ones that get rated on the home page?  That's just a guess.

Thanks, Catt.  I am relatively new to the forums and hadn't checked Hidden Gems yet.
