Saturday Review of Books: August 29, 2009

“So I have loitered my life away, reading books, looking at pictures, going to plays, hearing, thinking, writing on what pleased me best.”~WIlliam Hazlitt

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. Hey! I’m filling in for Carrie this week to link up our 5M4B reviews, and I just wanted to apologize for the slip of my finger on my teeny-tiny keyboard of my netbook that caused the mishap that is #15 up there! Thanks as always for this Saturday roundup!
