Best Non-Fiction Book

My reading list is definitely dominated by fiction. I'd go so far as to say that I'm fairly selective about what non-fiction I read. This seems to be reflected in this category because although I only read 15 non-fiction books in 2018, four of them are highlighted below. The non-fiction I read this year was… Continue reading Best Non-Fiction Book

What I Read – February 2018

2018 has obviously not been a great year for book reviews thus far but I am sneaking in lots of reading time. Here's what I read in February and the quickest reviews I can manage at this moment: The Hut BuilderĀ - Laurence Fearnley (Penguin Books, 2010 New Zealand novel. I likely would have abandoned this… Continue reading What I Read – February 2018

What I Read – January 2017

Read: The Sellout - Paul Beatty (Picador, 2015) Reflections on the Psalms - C.S. Lewis (A Harvest Book, 1958) A vocation is a terrible thing. To be called out of nature into the supernatural life is at first (or perhaps not quite at first - the wrench of the parting may be felt later) a… Continue reading What I Read – January 2017

Book Review: Reflections on the Psalms by C.S. Lewis

Book Review: A Grief Observed by C.S. Lewis

I read a review of A Grief Observed recently that suggested this is a book read primarily by the bereaved and I think that's a pretty fair assessment. This is a book read by those who have experienced loss and who are struggling. I've read it once before, more than a decade ago, but it… Continue reading Book Review: A Grief Observed by C.S. Lewis
