    Detroit City: Home In A Book

    This WWW Wednesday: I finally finished The Boys In The Boat, for those of you who missed last week’s post!! This week there are two books on the nightstand and they’re both enjoyable. I am clearly biased towards one (as the title of this post suggests), because it discusses one of my favorite topics — Detroit!

    Book Reviews Coming Soon & More

    Posting on Sitting in the Stacks has been inconsistent lately and it’s my hope to remedy that problem. We’re all busy folks, but many of you take the time to visit SitS regularly and I believe you deserve content. To help, here is a little sneak peak at what is to come in the next few weeks! This does the double duty of letting you know to check back soon and holding me responsible for what I guaranteed.

    WWW Wednesday: A Book A Day Keeps The Traffic At Bay

    It’s Wednesday and we all know what that means…WWW Wednesday! This summer edition of WWW Wednesday includes a new item — an audiobook! I only have one previous encounter with audiobooks and that was as a child. During a road trip, my friend’s mom played one of the Harry Potter books for us. I remember really enjoying that experience, so I’m very surprised it has taken me this long to try another audiobook.

    Happy 4th of July

    “Every child in America should be acquainted with his own country. He should read books that furnish him with ideas that will be useful to him in life and practice. As soon as he opens his lips, he should rehearse the history of his own country.” Noah Webster, On the Education of Youth in America, 1788   HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!

    *Sitting in the Stacks is well aware today is not Friday, but decided to post a day early as many people will be out celebrating the 4th of July with their friends and family tomorrow.  Beer, wine, whiskey — they all pair well with books! Who among us hasn’t enjoyed a nice beverage while curled up with our latest read? It appears this beloved ritual of many book lovers won’t have to remain within the confines of a home.

    WWW Wednesday, July 2, 2014: The beginning to a summer of books

    School is out for summer and we all know what that means — FUN READING! Now that I have dug my way out of the pile of research, school books, and papers burying me for the last 8.5 months it is time for a new installment of WWW Wednesdays! Over the summer, WWW Wednesdays will not have a “School” section, but only discuss all the “For Fun” books I can get my hands on. As an added bonus, I am including my first ever infographic!
