    Finding Information on the Latest Planning Books

    We can always browse the Amazon "bookstore" link to find new reads, but I dunno, it seems so bland. When I click over there, here is a boring list of familiar books:

    A Pattern Language
    The Death and Life of Great American Cities
    S,M,L,Xl
    The Timeless Way of Building
    A Field Guide to Sprawl *
    Suburban Nation

    But what about blogs? Over at urban cartography, there appear to be a number of urban planning related books listed on the left that are vastly more interesting than the Amazon Cyburbia-bookstore link.

    Where do you go online to find new books?

    * I actually want to read this book.

    Doesn't the APA website provide links to the book reviews they publish in their journal?

    The Planning Institute Australia publishes a lot of reviews in its journal but it is not available on-line.
