I had occasion the other day to resurrect all the book reviews I’ve written and posted on this site. For ease of access I’m posting them all here and taking the opportunity to categorize them.
The first groups the books I have read or would be likely to read more than once. Being worth such time, I’ve awarded them four “clocks.” 🕰🕰🕰🕰
The second grouping, receiving three “clocks,” 🕰🕰🕰, is for those that I genuinely liked. They are quite worthy, but did not have the same impact on me as those in the first.
The third lists books for which I did not much care. 🕰🕰,
And the fourth are books which I would not encourage any to invest their time. 🕰
I don’t start to read books I’m not likely to like. So, for books to end up in the bottom two categories means that these were books that I entered hopefully and was subsequently greatly disappointed.
These are only the books I’ve taken the time to write about. I could populate each category with many more selections, as could you.
I’m interested in hearing from you, especially if you disagree with my rankings.
The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane
Matterhorn: A Novel of the Vietnam War
George Whitefield: America’s Spiritual Founding Father
Amazing Grace: A Vocabulary of Faith
The History of the Ancient World
The Man Who Loved Books Too Much
Prayer: Experiencing Awe and Intimacy with God
Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy and here.
Thanks; the list is concise and helpful. I like the way you’ve organized it. Some I heartily agree with, others not so much.
I would love to hear your ‘not so much’ selections…
I just finished reading the Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane to Hezekiah this week. He Loved it – though it made us both very sad at times.
Was it good or bad that it made you sad?
