New Review Editor

Dear H-Borderlands suscribers,

My name is Ángeles Picone and I am one of the co-editors of the network. I am happy to announce I will also be serving as Review Editor. 

You have been receiving our Book Digest that we prepare from the Book Channel. Now, we can write and read reviews about our growing field.

I invite you to either contact me if you are willing to review a book and/or to indicate your interest in your H-Net profile (this is a new feature). Also, please visit the H-Net Reviews if you want to look at other reviews. 

congratulations Angie!

I am very happy to announce to our H-Borderlands community that my co-editor Maria de los Angeles Picone has completed the H-Net book review editor training!  This has been a key goal of hers since starting her co-editor role, and her hard work will pay off with a wonderful new feature for the network.  Congratulations Angie!
