The month in books: March

Here’s what I completed in March. My take on each of these can be found on Goodreads.com (I can’t link directly to my review for a given book, so I haven’t bothered to link at all. But if you’re on Goodreads, friend me and you can see them.)

  • The Yiddish Policemen’s Union, Michael Chabon
  • Down & Dirty: 43 Fun & Funky First-time Projects & Activities to Get You Gardening, Ellen Zachos
  • Everyday Pasta, Giada DeLaurentiis
  • Soon I Will Be Invincible, Austin Grossman
  • Logorrhea: Good Words Make Good Stories, John Klima

A little less this month than the last three — I got bogged down in The Yiddish Policemen’s Union as I didn’t like it all that much. (Excuses, excuses.)
