Saturday Review of Books: March 8, 2008

My home is where my books are.”
Ellen Thompson

Welcome to this week’s Saturday Review of Books. Here’s how it works. Find a review on your blog posted sometime this week of a book you’re reading or a book you’ve read. The review doesn’t have to be a formal sort of thing. You can just write your thoughts on a particular book, a few ideas inspired by reading the book, your evaluation, quotations, whatever.

Now post a link here to the specific post where you’ve written your book review. Don’t link to your main blog page because this kind of link makes it hard to find the book review, especially when people drop in later after you’ve added new content to your blog. In parentheses after your name, add the title of the book you’re reviewing. This addition will help people to find the reviews they’re most interested in reading.

  1. My daughter turns 7 today. She’ll be thrilled to learn that the author of ‘The Wind in the Willows’ shares her birthday!

    Thank you for hosting this.

  2. I read the 1937 Newbery winner, “Roller Skates” – and thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s about a 10 y.o. girl who spends a year with a couple of rather relaxed schoolteachers in New York City in the 1890’s. A mostly fun, rather old-fashioned story.

  3. Thanks again, and I’m still amazed at how this grows each week. I finished The Eyre Affair, a thumping good read in spite of some clumsy prose, and another volume of the graphic novel series Y the Last Man. Both quite good.
