"The Boys in the Boat" was the Community Read pick over the summer. My daughter read it and urged me to as well. I added it to my pile of "to read" books. I determined to stick to my #1 book rule: No new books until I've finished reading the one I'm currently on. (If that's not motivation to finish a book, I don't know what is!)
I'm not sure what it is about "The Boys in the Boat" that made me cry because I am definitely not a history buff or an Olympic sport fan. I read nonfiction rarely. But this book was captivating. I loved the glimpses of history in the pictures the book included. I can see why it was a New York Times Bestseller.
When was the last time you lost yourself in the pages of a book?
