Most of the books reviewed for this blog are bought or borrowed from a library. However, some (usually two dozen or less) each year are given to me free from the author or publisher.
I haven't previewed every book or other work of art that I included in my monthly arts lists. Many works are included for other reasons, such as insights to culture, making them worthwhile but perhaps containing questionable content. Therefore, use discernment when listening, reading, or viewing these pieces.
