Proposal to my friends (and not ;-) )

As I hope you noticed, I have a Top 100 Gay Novels list. It was born as a "Gay Romance" list, but then it was impossible to limit it to only the romance titles, there were so many books out there that were out of the boundaries of romance, but still they were wonderful. I still maintain the limit of the print release after January 1, 2000, and still consider only books available also in print: in this way I'm able to manage and maintain the list all by myself.

But, there is a but... some books of the list I read, some I have in mind to read, but some of them I will have never the courage to read, they are too strong for me, too far from my comfort zone. I know, it's not a good excuse for a reviewer, but guys, I have never pretended to be a real reviewer! So I'm making a proposition to who will like to accept it: if you have read one or more books in the list, and would like to send me a review, I will post it giving you full credits. I know that among my friends there are who have already read some of these novels (yes, yes, Alex (beauty_forashes) and Paul (gwailowrite), I'm calling also you, I know you read Dennis Cooper and Alexander Chee...), and it's not even necessary that you liked the book, even if it would be preferable. And you can also send me a review of the novels I have already read, if you want.

My idea, if possible, is to have at least a review for every novel in the List, so that all the authors in there will have the change to have a better Spotlight. So, here is the list:

I hope you will join me in this. Thank you in advance.
