I realize that most boards have stickied posts for books and online references.
Would it be possible to set up something here where we could recommend books, and provide reviews/ratings as well? I ask because often I find myself looking for books, and browsing through amazon.com reviews -- however most of their reviews are questionable (paid or coerced by publishers/authors for good reviews). So I was just looking for something a bit more than the stickied recommendations. Could each user have a "library", which they could link to books or online materials which they themselves have referenced and found useful? I'm looking for some more credibility in recommendations, as well as more advanced topics rather than "learn-a-language" (but those are good too), and even other topics (mathematics).
This was just an idea, as I've had my fair share of paying good money on bad books before.
I've forgotten my other ideas. I'm sure I'll be back to post more.
