Every two weeks we take inventory of the latest review copies we've received, jot down a few notes, and fire up the scanner -- and the result is our New Arrivals column, your own online book club. Who needs Oprah Winfrey when the SF Site gives you all the recommendations you need? Books are listed by publication date; most recent first. Where available, links to SF Site reviews and book excerpts are provided. The most recent lists are in the left column.
