When the Cradle-to-Cradle review is completed, a link to the review should be created on the page Cradle to cradle. At Category: Parras 2006 there is a link to this term, whose page doesn't exist yet. --Aaron 00:20, 29 August 2006 (PDT)

Signed reviews?

Cool page.

A thought: If opinions are expressed on these books, I'd suggest those comments be signed. For straight info on the book, we can link to the Wikipedia articles, which will generally give reasonable detail. --Singkong2005 (now known as Chriswaterguy) talk 01:40, 7 September 2006 (PDT)

Great idea. I added signatures. Please change it if you think some other format would be better. I see this page as somewhat transitionary... i.e. as this page grows, spin off pages will probably need to be formed and categorized. I think that this transition will be easy. If a user wants to link to a book review, they can link to the page name, and then a redirect could bring them to the book review on this page. I am thinking about doing this same type of scalable page for link reviews as well. What do you think? --Lonny 10:08, 7 September 2006 (PDT)

Transwiki?

As I've thought about this more, I wonder if it isn't better to encourage reviews to be posted at a more appropriate site (whether a wiki, or Amazon... it seems to me Amazon has the best reviews). This page could be replaced by one with recommendations of relevant books, with links to reviews. Not that there's anything wrong with the page, it's just there are huge sites out there already, that we won't be able to compete with in terms of number of reviews, and being set up to deal with reviews and star ratings. --Singkong2005 (now known as Chriswaterguy) · talk 03:05, 23 November 2006 (PST)

Bookshelf widget for reviews?

See Appropedia talk:Village pump #Library Section? for a discussion of how to deal with book reviews. --Chriswaterguy 13:07, 13 August 2008 (PDT)
