NY Times Book Review 125th Anniversary

Leveraging content has been mastered by the NY Times and its latest effort is a winner. A month ago, the Times published a special section celebrating the 125th Anniversary of its book review section. I liked reading some of the old reviews and reliving the books. I then noticed they published a more voluminous book, which is now residing in one of my overcrowded bookcases.

Rereading contemporary reviews of books that I enjoyed was a good experience especially since some have become modern classics and Academy Award winning movies. I know how popular and long-lasting the books have become and reading the original reviews gave me a peek back in time to judge the initial assessments. I enjoyed everything I read in that new book.

Following are some of the reviews I read, but just flipping back and forth through the book was a pleasure. Some of these books were controversial when published and opened new ground and similar books of that period are summarized with brief comments.

I found out about this book a little too late to give as holiday gifts, but it is not too late for you to treat yourself and get your own copy. Enjoy!

Have a Happy Holiday and New Year!
