From July 2002 to Ferbruary 2005, I picked a book or a vidoe (almost) every month to be featured as "Book/video of the Month". I picked a book or a video I liked. I did not have to be new. Most often it was not. But it should be something more than a collection of last years hits.

When I decided to redesign and redevelop the site, this series stopped. The redesign and redevelopment took more than the time I could dedicate to this site. Maybe I will start doing this again. But until then, here are the books and (soon to come) videos that I did pick in the period this series was running.
