Thumbs up, Thumbs down #1

I realized over the last year that there are many books that show up on my blog as just titles and never as reviews. It’s true, I don’t read everything that I check out from the library. I do try everything that I check out from the library. Not everything gets a review.

However, just because I don’t review a book doesn’t mean I didn’t like the book. To remedy this I’m starting a new feature. Every once in a while I’m going to post a short summary of what I’ve liked, and the other books. Welcome to Thumbs up, Thumbs down.

Thumbs up:

Bad Religion by: Ross Douthat

Earth Made of Glass by: John Barnes
