Books We Love!

We are scattering journals around the college, called Books We Love. If you find one, write a short review of a book you love and pass it on. We'll publish select entries on our blog.

Here is the first review we received:
"I greatly enjoyed An Acre of Time by Phil Jenkins. This book describes the history of a small part of what is now Ottawa, from the ancient pre-historic past up until very recent times.

I was given this book as a gift, and expected it to be extremely boring... in fact I didn't try reading it for twelve years: Ottawa author, geologic time, slow beginning.

But I was wrong! After a slow beginning, Jenkins gets into fascinating gossip about who did what to whom, and I couldn't put it down.... ended up carrying it around with me everywhere.

Highly Recommended!"
