BTW:

5 quality book reviews, w/photos of book cover as a minimum will qualify the contributor as a Feature Writer.

pnegyesi, I found the books you choose really interesting.
Is it possible to add (few) more pics of them, including the index?
Since I started this thread, I took a lot of more books, and your suggestions are excellent!

Thanks, there are more books awaiting to be reviewed. Some of them are well-known, others are, well, not so well-known :)

We'll try to ask my brother to take more pictures, he's much better in this

Got many new books as well, but will write reviews not until some particular puzzles had been solved... ;)

Personally, I don't like to feature puzzles from books. I don't want to get into many details here, but as an author I had my own problems with people who've taken content without my permission. Yes, I know all the arguments here about making a book more popular, but still I have this aversion. Anyhow, this is not against anyone, just my personal policy :)

I agree. But the idea (PJ's, iirc) about posting reviews is indeed great!

Done.  Paul this is definitely in your realm of things you can now do.  Look under someones profile for their account related settings and go from there.

Just wanted to tell you that today I was finally able to bring home a lot of books a friend of mine bought this summer from the collection of the late Rudolf Kaiser.
Kaiser was a really, nice gentleman who made a living out of meticulously built racing car scale models. He had clients in Switzerland, Germany etc.  Some of his books included volumes from the Catalogue Raisonne series, including Maserati, Cisitalia. I now also have a book on the history of Borgward, another on Veritas, and another on Duesenberg :), also  a tome on the history of Carrozerria Touring et. al.
I am still after his most valuable posession though :) It is a notebook full of drawings, sketches from the 1920s taken at the Schwabenberg Hill Race in Budapest by Jenő Jurek.

Ordered it now via www.buchkatalog.de. The Spanish seller will ship it to my local book store where I'll finally pick it up. (in 3-6 weeks  :-\)

Oh my! Meanwhile got a lot of new books to review. Don't know where to start.
Usually I prefer to write about those with a grazed content of mystery cars... ;)

Yes please, I really enjoy seeing reviews of obscure books, it's a big help in deciding what books I should buy myself - so many older, more obscure books I have never seen so can't really decide whether they are worth the (often high) prices being asked.

For example, I would love to see a review of the Von Horning book by Christian Suhr, if anyone has this?

If you are talking about Christian Suhr's book "Von Hornig bis zur IFA" about the coachbuilder Hornig, I can say that it is a very good book with lots of archive pictures. I bought it for the regular price and it is worth it, but prices seem to have risen since it is out of print.
