As some of you know, I write a regular film review blog that is available on this website. Some of you are subscribers to the blog and receive a notice from me when there is a new post. I am now pleased to let you know that I have now published a freely available book of the posts in PDF format that I hope you will enjoy reading. If you download it to iBooks, it should display with the usual ease of content page access etc. This means you can dip into reviews without having to search back through the blogs. You will find the link here:
