Dear Colleague,

Please find below a list of books that are available to volunteers who would like to write a 500-word book note for Language in Society. A book note is a summary of a book's content. Graduate students are welcome to write book notes, with a faculty member's supervision. Please send a list of books you would like to write notes on (in order of preference) to langsoc at cambridge.org<mailto:langsoc at cambridge.org>. Book notes will be due 3 months after you receive the book.

Please forward this list to students and colleagues who might be interested in writing a book note for Language in Society. Each book will go to the first person who requests it. Because there is a limited supply of books, book notes will be limited to one per person.

Best wishes,

John Weston
