Summer Book Reviews

By | September 21, 2007

I plowed through a bunch of books this summer and swore to myself with each one that I would post a book review. It’s not like I spent all summer just watching episodes of Robot Chicken, The Simpsons, The Venture Brothers, and Ghost in the Shell. Sure, that took up 80% of my free time, but I engaged with literature at times, too.

So here’s a partial list of reviews to potentially look forward to, or not, in no particular order:

I also read reasonable sized chunks of several technical books, but I’ll probably spare you those. I mean, do you really want to read about how I used Fedora Linux by Chris Tyler to better configure my desktop and laptop? Yeah, I didn’t think so, even though it is a useful book.

    Hi Robert,
    This is Jeff Thomas (re: Rice, Sandra). I really like the site. I’ve been doing a walk-about through your various topics for the last three weeks. Really enjoy your topics and thoughts.
    Your list of books really caught my eye – because many are ones I’ve read as well, and liked. And that made me interested in checking out your other selections – very curious now to try some Neil Gaiman. But I think 2007 is your last book review blog. How about an update? I’m curious on what has caught your eye recently. Have you read Pollan’s In Defense of Food. I really liked that. Do you read Malcolm Gladwell at all? (I see you liked Freakonomics)
    Hope all is well
