Subject: New books on the ADS Web

Thanks, Natalie, for agreeing so readily with that good idea!

My suggestion is: limit it to books relevant to our field; have a length

limit for descriptions (maybe 200 words); published within the past year is a

good time limit.

For the Newsletter of the ADS, I do even shorter notices (no more than 100

words usually), but that's because of space limitations. I also restrict it

to books by ADS members, but on the other hand include any book regardless of

subject matter. Somehow that seems fine for the newsletter, but I'd suggest

the other policies for the Web site.
