    The Boys In The Boat – A Review

      Nine men in one boat achieve a lasting legacy. If The Boys in the Boat were to be summarized in one sentence that would be it. The Boys in the Boat follows the nine students of the University of Washington who won the gold medal in rowing at the 1936 Berlin Summer Olympics. Beginning with their first days in a boat to their victory, The Boys in the Boat marks a notable, but often forgotten, moment in history.

    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.

    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!
