The Year in Reading: March 2008

Alas, the March of time cannot be slowed or stopped. Get it? “March”? Anyway. Less reading this month, perhaps because a certain project had gotten off the ground at the end of February and there was a ton of work to be done.

Other than Her Last Death, everything I read in March was for an assignment. I blogged for the Festival of the Book, specifically the science and nature panel, and I reviewed What Would Jesus Deconstruct? for the Internet Review of Books.

March

Her Last Death: A Memoir, Susanna Sonnenberg, pub. 2008, NF ****

  • Another Mommy, Dearest type memoir. I can’t leave them alone.

Sex Sleep Eat Drink Dream: A Day in the Life of Your Body, Jennifer Ackerman, pub. 2007, NF ****

  • Up-to-the-minute scientific findings on the hidden role circadian rhythms play in our lives.

American Chestnut: The Life, Death, and Rebirth of a Perfect Tree, Susan Freinkel, pub. 2007, NF ****

  • The book should be of particular interest to people living along the Appalachian Mountains. The chestnut was an important player in the economy, diet, and traditions of this region.

What Would Jesus Deconstruct?: The Good News of Postmodernism for the Church (The Church and Postmodern Culture), John D. Caputo, pub. 2007, NF ***

  • Another salvo in the the religious culture wars, this time from the Left.
