[bksvol-discuss] Re: adult rateing and page numbers

Dear Lissi,

Sometimes libraries and Amazon have reviews from The
Library Journal and Publishers' Weekly and they will
give a recommended age level for children's or Young
Adults books. Just put in the title of the book. IN
the case of libraries, there's an icon if the review
is available for reading.
