Read a Damn Book (Book Reviews) List

Greetings Primitives! As many of you have noticed, we started posting book reviews back in February of 2017. (“Where DO you get your ideas?” you may have wondered—we get them from BOOKS!) However, because we are such BUSY BEAVERS™ here at the P.E.W., the individual reviews get quickly swamped by the deluge of cryptic drawings, poetic musings, and alternative religion posts. The decision was made (in passive voice, of course) to make a separate site JUST FOR THE BOOK REVIEWS. (We’re trying to get organized here!) But, so that our darling readers can still FIND the book reviews, we’ve decided to make a LINKS page. Click on the titles of any of these books below to find your way to ADVENTURE!
