Welcome to Mrs. Brecht's Bookshelf. Here you can read reviews of books that I read personally and books that I enjoy reading to my sons. Read more about our Caldecott journey here and about my decision to read banned/challenged books here. I'll also periodically post fun reading-related activities and ideas. Who knows, I may even start doing some book giveaways if I get enough readers!

The Screwtape Letters - Summer 2010 - Genre: Fantasy

Genre #1 -- Fantasy
The Screwtape Letters by C. S. Lewis
read 5/28/2010

I love C.S. Lewis's unique perspective in this book (writing from the perspective of a devil). There is a lot of food for thought for Christians (live in the present, it's the "little" sins that cause us to stumble, one of Satan's primary goals is to cause us to be self-focused, etc.). At times I got bogged down by the reading; it seemed to drag a bit--could be partially due to Lewis's academic-type sentence structure and vocabulary. The chapters, however, are very short, so it was easy to take a break when I needed one.

This book was part of my 2010 summer reading program.
