I received  The Western Lit Survival Kit: An Irreverant Guide to the Classics from Homer to Faulkner by Sandra Newman from Librarything's Early Reviewer group.  Unfortunately, i didn't like it very much. it was just too snarky.  i suppose I just had the impression that the author didn't really want anyone to read many of the books mentioned.  ah well. 


  1. I was offered this book and I'm really glad I didn't get it now. I have too many review copies already.

  2. There were a few chapters that were good, like the one on Shakespeare. overall though i just really didn't like the tone.
