Quote for the Day:
"A child of five would understand this.
Send someone to fetch a child of five."
I have just finished two books and thought I'd do a review on them for all you bibliophiles out there! :)
For those of us who grew up in the USA in the 60's and 70's, we had few sports heroes, unlike today when there are MANY sports "idols".
In boxing, we had The Great Muhammad Ali..."floats like a butterfly, stings like a bee". In basketball there was Karim Abdul-Jabbar. And in chess we had Bobby Fischer...the man who made chess popular in America.
That brings me to my first book review..."Endgame: Bobby Fischer's Remarkable Rise and Fall-from America's Brightest Prodigy to the Edge of Madness" by Frank Brady.
The second book was an audiobook I've been listening to... "A Widow's Story: A Memoir" by Joyce Carol Oates.
