===================

In January

{Travel}

At GumtreesandGalaxies, Sharon shares her thoughts on Findings by Kathleen Jamie, “Jamie beautifully captures time and place in immediate, mindful observation, bringing the experience of Scotland, especially wild Scotland to vivid life.”

—————-

{Wartime Experience}

Tina at TurnthePage, writes Dispatches, “…is an incredible accounting of a time period about the Vietnam War, told with such descriptive clarity by journalist Michael Herr.”

—————-

{Self Help}

#EntryLevelBoss: a 9-step guide for finding a job you like (and actually getting hired to do it) by Alexa Shoen is recommended by Tracey at Carpe Librum, who writes it, “… if your job hunting has stagnated or you need a confidence boost or a fresh approach, #EntryLevelBoss is well worth the read.”

—————

{Essays}

From Jo at BookloverBookReviews “Laura Greaves’ Dogs with Jobs is a wonderful title to dip into, and read a story or two, whenever you are in need of a boost, or simply a healthy dose of perspective. Few hearts will fail to be moved by these stories of loyalty, resilience, dedication and commitment by very special dogs and their humans.”

—————-

{Biography}

At Journey and Destination, Carol writes thoughtfully about Long Walk to Freedom by Nelson Mandela. She regrets she hadn’t read it earlier, she calls it, “…an incredible story”, which she highly recommends.

    Hi Shelleyrae, thanks for featuring Long Walk. I tried to leave a comment on Sharon’s blog above but I have trouble with WordPress at times. I think my comments go into spam. Very annoying!

    Hi Shelleyrae! What a wonderful idea to share some fellow bloggers’ reviews on a challenge you take part it. Bravo to you!

    I am going to take a look at Dogs with Jobs. Sounds lovely and I’m sure Elza won’t mind a few canine stories.

    A long walk to freedom is a mesmerizing read. I might be biased seeing that I’m South African myself though…

    Hope you are enjoying a good weekend!
