Weekly Book Wrap Up

3 Books for this week, and even tho one is mostly pictures of ads I'm counting it lol

Culture Is Our BusinessCulture Is Our Business by Marshall McLuhan
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Probably not for everyone due to the layout of the book, its all quotes or sayings. Interesting ideas, but a lot of it is badly dated, but it was written 45 years ago. 


The Golden Age of Advertising - the 50'sThe Golden Age of Advertising - the 50's by Willie Wilkerson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is full of a lot of different ads to look at, a larger format would have been nice, but still a great look into advertising and social history. Hardly any text so great if you just want to look at images, but not so good for info about the ads themselves.


The Dispossessed (Hainish Cycle, #5)The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Don't get the love for this book at all. Horribly written, dry, boring characters, at least 50 pages too long. I had to force myself to finish this book, it just seems to drag on, probably due to the horrible writing.
