Saturday Review of Books: April 12, 2008

There is then creative reading as well as creative writing. When the mind is braced by labor and invention, the page of whatever book we read becomes luminous with manifold allusion. Every sentence is doubly significant, and the sense of our author is as broad as the world.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

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. Thanks for hosting this each week! I gave up blogging everything except my book reviews, so this is my only blog “outlet.” I also am going to try to join you for your Biblically Literate Book Club. However, the first selection really depends on the speed I get it through interlibrary loan.

  2. Thanks as always Sherry! And I have to add a super big thank you for writing up a post about the book review database I’ve been putting together. I neglected to let you know that I appreciated it!

  3. Another double-duty Poetry Friday post this week – children’s poetry anthologies from our shelves.
