I have been reading through the reviews of books and some sergers lately and have been frustrated. Perhaps books could be organized by category, eg. serging, etc. And perhaps one could find a book by title, author, etc. I wanted to find a book I'd read about on this list, and I had to go page by page until I found it again. Today I wanted to read all the reviews of books written about serging and had to go through every page.
Perhaps all reviews of one serger or sewing machine could be together. I wanted to read all the reviews of the Babylock sergers, as I'm considering buying one. Thanks for listening, i.e. reading. Pam

Hi Pam! There's a Search field at the top of the PR.com page where you can type any word or even partial words. It will show all the reviews with that word. For example, I just typed in serg to find anything with serger or serging and got a page listing results in Book Reviews, Classified, and other categories. There were 17 books that had serger (or serging) in either the title or within the review. Lots of Pattern Reviews, since people mention their sergers often, I guess (LOL).
You can also sort the review lists by clicking on one of the headings. For example, I went to the Sewing Machine & Serger Reviews page and clicked on the Type heading and the sewing machines all were listed first, then all the sergers.
You can also enter an author's name in the Search field. I entered betz and found reviews for 5 Sandra Betzina books and 4 other reviews that mentioned her.
Hope this helps!
Going to PR Weekend!

Thanks for replying to Pam, Little shell. I have one more thing to add to it. If you read the FAQ page http://www.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/faq.pl perhaps that will answer some of your queries.
Books and Patterns have an advanced search (click on search from the left nav bar)
