Saturday Review of Books: January 31, 2009

“Reading makes immigrants of us all. It takes us away from home, but more important, it finds homes for us everywhere.”
~Hazel Rochman

Mail0001Welcome to this week’s Saturday Review of Books.

Here’s how it usually 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.

Thanks to everyone for participating.

  1. Thanks for continuing to do this! I find so many great books here!

  2. I reviewed one of Joel Rosenberg’s political thrillers — not a genre I read very often, but a nice change of pace.

    What a sweet picture. Is the book upside down? My girls used to do that too.

  3. S

    I have Agatha Christie posted! The Body in The Library! Have a great day!!


  4. have loved your site for a long time, glad to finally be a participator (now that i’ve made my blog public rather than just for family)

    happy weekend-
