Saturday Review of Books: July 22, 2017

“I scribble, underline, note, add, cross out, put in exclamation marks, turn down corners – even sometimes jot down phone numbers and PINs and reminders to buy cat food.” ~Susan Hill


Welcome to the Saturday Review of Books at Semicolon. Here’s how it usually works. Find a book review on your blog posted sometime during the previous week. The review doesn’t have to be a formal sort of thing. You can link to your thoughts on a particular book, a few ideas inspired by reading the book, your evaluation, quotations, whatever.

Then on Friday night/Saturday, you post a link here at Semicolon in Mr. Linky 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.

After linking to your own reviews, you can spend as long as you want reading the reviews of other bloggers for the week and adding to your wishlist of books to read.

  1. I’m so sorry – I don’t know how Dr. Jekyll got on there 3 times. I was getting error messages saying it wasn’t going through, but even then I didn’t enter it 3 times – at least not on purpose.

  2. Thanks for hosting, Sherry!

  3. Coming here on a Saturday morning is like browsing in a peaceful and welcoming book store! Thanks for your efforts here to make it all happen.

  4. Happy Saturday Sherry, hope you have a lovely weekend.
