What are you Reading?

With one nephew in college and a number of sibling's children still in school, I try to make sure that they see me enjoying a good book or two. The one I've just finished is by New York Post columnist Mike Vaccaro entitled "1941 The Greatest Year in Sports" with the subtitle "Two Baseball Legends, Two Boxing Champs, and the Unstoppable Thoroughbred Who Made History in the Shadow of War".

It's an excellent look at baseball greats DiMaggio and Williams, boxing kings Louis and Conn and Whirlaway the Triple Crown winning race horse and how they provided a diversion from the realities of the events of World War II.

No matter what you read, be an example for children and adults and let them know how much you enjoy reading for pleasure.
