Saturday Review of Books: August 12, 2006

It’s that time again. Let’s share some book reviews.

For the uninitiated, here’s how it 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, 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. Please add only one book review per customer per week. (However, if your children, friends, orother family members have their own blogs and have written on a book, they are welcome to add their own link.) In parentheses after your name, add the title of the book you’ve written about. This addition will help people to find the reviews they’re most interested in reading.

Finally, follow the links to read other people’s book reviews for the week. I sure hope Mr. Linky doesn’t stumble over any apostrophes this week. I’m going to a meeting this morning; please leave lots of links to book reviews for me to read when I get home.

Saturday Review of Books

The links for the Saturday Review of Books are all up now. Scroll down to link to some great book reviews. If you didn’t make it over here on Saturday, you can still add a link to your book review from last week.

I’m sorry the Mr. Linky wasn’t working on Saturday. We were on our annual pilgrimage to Winedale for a taste of Shakespeare. (More about that tomorrow.) So I didn’t know it wasn’t working until yesterday. Mr. Linky said it had something to do with an apostrophe? Oh, those troublesome punctuation marks!

Anyway, it’s all there now. Take a look and read some reviews. I found at least three books to add to my list.

Keep Writing those Book Reviews

The Saturday Review of Books went well for the first week: sixteen people posted reviews. I think we’ll try it again this Saturday.

For the uninitiated, here’s how it works. Post a review 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, whatever.

Then, on Saturday, come to Semicolon and post a link 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. Please add only one book review per customer per week. (However, if your children, friends, orother family members have their own blogs and have written on a book, they are welcome to add their own link.) In parentheses after your name, add the title of the book you’ve written about. This addition will help people to find the reviews they’re most interested in reading.

Finally, follow the links to read other people’s book reviews for the week. You might discover some books to add to your list (or some books to avoid).

Happy reading!
