Saturday Review of Books: May 30, 2009

“All my life I have been trying to learn to read, to see and hear, and to write.”
~Carl Sandburg

Welcome 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. New to this – I forgot to add the title of the book I reviewed (#16 above). It is Mistaken Identity, and it was a great read! Love the idea of this Saturday Review!

  2. Grr. My links aren’t working. I think something is wonky with the entry boxes. I read League of Extraordinary Gentlemen v. 1 and 1910. Apologies for the confusion.

  3. Yikes! I linked to the wrong page (my dashboard). I am so sorry. Is there a way you can delete? It is entry #104. This is what comes of nursing a baby and trying to type at the same time.
