How should review the D&D manuals?

So I mentioned that going through my manuals and writing up some sort of review for them. The problem is, I have no idea what I should be focusing on to provide a useful review.

It will, of course, require me to read the whole of the book. I mean, try to read most of the book. Going through a list of spells one by one is going to get tedious, even if I find cool tidbits here and there. Feats,, monster stat blocks, all of these things are going to get tiresome. I’ll try, but we’ll see how that goes.

One of the things I’ll be reporting on is how useful the book is outside of its specific edition. The contents in the books aren’t 100% mechanics, so supposedly, some parts of it can be used regardless of edition or game system, even.

I’m also likely to do bits and bobs of thoughts as I read, like I did with the MM2 the other day. Each blurb could probably be expanded on, so I might try that.

But I don’t know what else. Any ideas, loyal readers?
