Book Reviews

I've put a lot of thought into how I'm going to list the reviews and after getting some advice I've settled on what I think is a straightforward system.  The reviews will be broken into two basic categories; Fiction and Non Fiction.  They will then be separated by author, listed by the last name.  Underneath the author's name will be links to the author's books that I have reviewed.  They will be in alphabetical order.  Now if the author has more than one series, I will group those books together, in order. Granted my method may make the page longer than some others, but I think it will be easier to find reviews this way.

If you have any suggestions on how to make this page easier to use, please feel free to let me know.
