Books Read March 2007

I read all these books in March while I was on blog break. I really do read more books when I’m not blogging, but I missed writing about the books here at Semicolon. I did keep notes in a spiral notebook, but it’s not the same. So now I’m busy catching up on my book reviews/reactions. More thoughts on some of the following books are due to come in future posts..

An Abundance of Katherines–Green

All the King’s Men by Robert Penn Warren. Semicolon review here.

A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving. I only read about half of this book before I realized that I was tired of all the people in the book. Question I wrote in my journal for the month: Will I grow to at least like the characters in this book if I keep reading or will I grow more and more tired of them? I didn’t finish because I decided the latter feeling was more likely.

  1. Just wanted to let you know that I used your blog to find ideas for our Faith in Literature reading group. We are going to read The Small Rain as one of our selections!

    Since I don’t keep up with grown up literature very much any more, your blog was Heaven sent.
