I’m cramming for two upcoming book discussions, so this week we’ve got… the Bite Size Reviews.
Here we have three books I’ve read recently, liked just fine, and then completely not written about here.
Teammate: My Journey in Baseball and a World Series for the Ages by David Ross
3 words: revealing, fast-paced, casual
Delectable quote: “Don’s idea was that this book be about exactly that, passing along all that I’ve learned from others on an important subject: how to make yourself valuable, even if you’re not the most valuable.” (p. xix)
Give this book a whirl if you like… teamwork, self-improvement, being there for others, baseball, sports memoirs, the Chicago Cubs
The Towers of Trebizond by Rose Macaulay
3 words: lyrical, contemplative, philosophical
Delectable quote: “‘Take my camel, dear,’ said my aunt Dot, climbing down from that animal on her return from high Mass.” (p. 1)
Give this book a whirl if you like… long, witty sentences; exploring religious beliefs, British humor
Moonglow by Michael Chabon
3 words: complex, unfolding, unsentimental
Delectable quote: “Keeping secrets was a family business.”
Give this book a whirl if you like… anecdotal storytelling, family secrets revealed, fascinating fictional lives, non-consecutive narratives, the Space Race, spies, gruff older fellows
What books have you read (and not had time to write about) lately ?
