Book Reviews Revisited
I (finally) have a new website. As part of the planning process, I had to think about which blog posts I wanted to take with me to the new site and which ones were dated and needed to go.
So, I sifted through the archives and re-read everything. An interesting experience! Not every article from my olden days was a gem worth keeping, but it was great fun to see my book reviews and remember reading the books.
So, why not re-share these reviews with you? If you’re looking for one last book to top off the towering stack on your bedside table, one of these might be just what you are looking for.
Unsurprisingly, these books are all about language and writing. They’re a fun read AND you’ll learn something.
Give these Books a Try
- David Marsh, For Who the Bell Tolls
- Erin Moore, That’s not English
- Stephen Pinker, Sense of Style
- Daniel Menaker, The African Svelte
- Josh Bernoff, Writing Without Bullshit
There is no short shortage of books I’d love to review if I could just find the time. Next time I post a roundup, there might be some new articles to add to this list.
Some of the books in my book-review stack are the following:
- Robert McCrum, Globish, How The English Language Became the World’s Language
- Gretchen McCulloch, Because Internet: Understanding How Language Is Changing
- Nina Hovdar-Sattler, Get Fit for the Future of Transcreation
Have you read any great books lately? Any recommendations for me?
