The list author says: "Last year, I set a goal to read at least 25 books for the year and I kept track of them using Listmania. I'm doing the same thing this year, but planning to read at least 30 books. So, this is my personal reading list of books I've read so far this year."
"Not as good as the 1st book which I read last year. Charlaine Harris is a mediocre author who found a market, and obviously people eat it up, even more now since it's an HBO show. I was amazed at the bad writing and mistakes that an editor didn't catch. But guess what? I'm already reading book three in the series. So far, so good."
"Bad title for this book. It should have been called Hard Poems for Bad Times. There were only a handful of poems that I felt could get me through a hard time or offer inspiration. It's more of just a collection of poems about place, time, love, and death collected by Keillor. I give it three out of five stars."
"Considered a classic and on many school reading lists, it was not required reading when I was in school. I wanted to see what I'd missed out on, but didn't find the book to be all that enjoyable. Read my review of it on the Amazon product page."
