This page is an index of books I have reviewed on Reading Acts. I have listed the books in alphabetical order by the author’s last name. I have indicated which books were given to me by the publisher with an asterisk. Since I am a College professor I sometimes receive books to review as potential textbooks rather than as a blogger for review. The software section of this page is reverse chronological order (newer posts are at the top of the list).
