Bags-I pick of the books

AdvantagesSimple, unbiased reviews; direct access; no gimmicks

Disadvantagesnone

"The American writer Christopher Morley once said "When you sell a man a book, you don't sell him 12 ounces of paper and ink and glue - you sell him a whole new life". Many others have often said: "so many books, so little time".

Open The Bookbag and Bookmark these great reviews!

AdvantagesSimplistic layout, exceptionally written reviews, impartial recommendations.

Disadvantagess the layout is a little too simplistic? Limited number of genres and reviews presently.

"Sometimes I tire of opinion sites. Wading through countless identikit reviews to find my next purchase can get a man down. It was therefore a pleasant surprise when I stumbled across the Bookbag, a brand new book review and recommendation site that has somehow managed to escape the trappings of the standard opinion site. The Bookbag differs from other opinion sites in that it does not offer the reader/browser the chance to rate the reviews according ..." Read review
