Search Results for 'book review'


As part of my goals for 2009, I vowed to read more. I’m aiming for a book a week, but sometimes it takes longer. I’m plugging along though.

I won’t do a typical book review because frankly I hate them. What I’m going to do is 10 lines of 10 words or less. I’ll try not to ruin any endings or give away major twists.

Hopefully it will give you enough of an idea about if you want to read the book or not.

Other book reviews are here.
