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! Read 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. Read more
There is not much new to update everyone on this week. I have been busy writing for work and studying for Spanish class. This has not left a lot of time to write reviews or, sadly, read. Please stay tuned for a review of We Were Liars and a local cooperative bookstore here in Chicago. Read more

I also cannot believe it’s going to be May, because that means I have five weeks left in the school year. I have five weeks to write 3 papers and these are not tiny, friendly essays. Breathe, as I used to say to my friends working the 2008 Presidential campaign. Just breathe. On that note, let’s get to this weeks W.W.W. Wednesday! Read more
As there is still an hour left is Wednesday, I would like to introduce one of the two new initiatives I hope to keep up with on Sitting in the Stacks.
WWW Wednesdays comes from the blog Should Be Reading. Every Wednesday, Should Be Reading, and other blogs, such as Heart of Sultana, post the three Ws of reading: • What are you currently reading? • What did you recently finish reading? • What do you think you’ll read next?Read more
