Books: 2009 in review

January 18, 2010 | 2009,Books,Stephen King,Stieg Larsson

Here’s what I read in 2009.

I made a list of Iowa books and authors.
I also participated in a SHE WRITES call to action.

Books I haven’t read yet but should.

Any other suggestions?

Books: The Family

October 29, 2009 | Books

I just finished reading The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power by Jeff Sharlet. It wasn’t as scary as it was hyped, what with the blurb from Barbara Ehrenreich: “Sharlet’s book is one of the most compelling and brilliantly researched exposes you’ll ever read — just don’t read it alone at night!” Sharlet’s portrait at the beginning of the book shows only half his face. The rest is hidden in shadow. A wee bit over the top. I couldn’t help wondering how he gained such access. But, all in all … interesting read.
