Sites We Like

Here are a couple of web sites that have come in handy here at the Library:

Reading New Mexico is a new website consisting of book reviews "with a New Mexico connection." The reviews are organized by fiction and non-fiction, title and author. So far, the reviews posted are short enough to read quickly, but long enough to give you good information about the book. The site is also accepting reviewers if your favorite books aren't reviewed yet. Keep an eye on Reading New Mexico as it grows in its coverage of our state's rich and varied literature.

In a different vein, Project Vote Smart has been indispensible since the national political conventions, and will only get more popular as Election Day draws closer. It's a reliable, unbiased source of information about political candidates at all levels of government. While some of the availability of information depends on what the candidates supply, the inclusion of voting records, issue positions, and interest group ratings make this a valuable clearinghouse for voter information.

Have you come across any good sites lately? Let us know!
