It is probably not appropriate to post answers to this question to XML-DEV,
though I expect Sajeev will get some private mail. However it got me

I was recently asked to review three XML books for the Times Higher
Educational Supplement (the UK weekly magazine for HE). Among others things
I noted the value of public online reviews (e.g. at amazon.com - anyone can
post) from which I was able to find a lot of useful information (one
reviewer had listed a number of typos in one book). I also commented that
fixed-date paper books were likely to be of increasingly limited value and
that the resources on the WWW itself were extremely important. We have the
opportunity in XML to create a new approach to "books" since we control the
technology of publication. An XML "book" is no longer static, but
distributed over time, place and society. 

Are there opportunities here for XML-DEV? We would not wish to duplicate
the excellent work of Robin Cover, Steve Pepper, xml.com and others in
collating awareness of XML resources. I know of one or two *.com sites with
book and program reviews. Do they fill everyone's need? Or is there a role
for  XML-DEV "reviews"?
