Saturday Review of Books: November 25, 2017

“No two persons ever read the same book.” ~Edmund Wilson


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 received an error from the linky and couldn’t fix it with the removal tool. I didn’t mean to submit two links of the same post. I’m sorry for the error.

  2. In my recent experience with reading Jayber Crow and discussing it in community, I saw the truth of the quote you shared in action! We all approached the book with different perspectives and those who blogged about it always had unique emphases. I was really enriched by the experience!

  3. It’s true that when you read a book, the book is also reading you. Thanks for hosting, Sherry!
