Read in March

How Right You Are, Jeeves by P. G. Wodehouse
Into each year, some Bertie must be read. (Listened to the audiobook on the way to North Carolina.) 8.5/10

I Am America (and So Can You!) by Stephen Colbert
I am a cliched white person: I love the Colbert Report and thought this book was hilarious. Some chapters are worth reading over and over. 8/10

White Teeth by Zadie Smith
I liked this book, the fragmented relationships and the threads that tie people together were interesting and overall I found it well written. It did have some slower parts. In the world of contemporary novels, it’s a good read, and it’s remarkable when you consider the age and experience of the author. 9/10

Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne
Read with my literature students, for the first time. I enjoyed it, and really enjoyed contemplating the idea of a novel published as a serial and everyone reading it with great interest. Oh, how times have changed… 8/10
