Saturday Review of Books: April 3, 2010

“I only read what I am hungry for at the moment when I have an appetite for it, and then I do not read, I eat.”~Simone Weil

Sorry so late.

If you’re not familiar with and linking to and perusing the Saturday Review of Books here at Semicolon, you’re missing out. Here’s how it usually works. Find a review on your blog posted sometime during the previous week of a book you were 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.

Then on 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. That’s how my own TBR list has become completely unmanageable and the reason I can’t join any reading challenges. I have my own personal challenge that never ends.

  1. Good morning, readers! I’m in the midst of two books, Anne Frank: The Life, the Book, the Afterlife, and Wolf Hall. Hope to report back on at least one of them next week!

  2. Ack, I forgot all about this until just now. I would have waited until next week except the book I finished is specifically about Easter. The full title is Jesus, Keep Me Near the Cross: Experiencing the Passion and Power of Easter, but it wouldn’t fit in the Mr. Linky box. 🙂

    Thanks for hosting this every week!
