Dorm Room Book Club: New Book Selection!!!

Dorm Room Book Club: New Book Selection!!!


You all know I am a cool nerd, I would rather sit with a cool book then go outside (most of the times) When winter comes around you can find me snuggling with a book and something hot in a cool mug (I loves me a cool mug) I started the Dorm Room Book Club because more often than not I read a book and want to share it with the world. Or someone goes on a social media site and says this, “I need to read more does anyone have any good book suggestions.” Or someone will post a picture of a quote from a book and I want to read it.

Either way we all have our moments when we are looking for our next good book but simply don’t know what book is So I thought, why not start my own book club for people who want to read but don’t know what book to begin with. So while this ain’t the Oprah book club this book club is for people looking to read new books or suggest good books. For the month of January thought we could all bring in the new year with a book that questions how much of a role your environment plays into who you become.

unnamed“The Other Wes Moore,” by Wes Moore is a true story that will make you think. The title of the book peaked my interest, I flipped the book over to read the back and I knew I had to read this book.

“Two kids with the same name, living in the same city. One grew up to be a Rhodes Scholar, decorated combat veteran, White House Fellow, and business leader. The other is serving a life sentence in prison for felony mur­der. Here is the story of two boys and the journey of a generation. In December 2000, the Baltimore Sun ran a small piece about Wes Moore, a local student who had just received a Rhodes Scholarship. The same paper also ran a series of articles about four young men who had allegedly killed a police officer in a spectacularly botched armed robbery. The police were still hunting for two of the suspects who had gone on the lam, a pair of brothers. One was named Wes Moore.”

Both men grew up in the same city, with similar backgrounds and friends but they turned out very different. I have not yet read this book I waited to blog about it so someone could say “I want to read it” and then I would have a reading buddy. I always read a book and want to call someone but I never know anyone who is currently reading what I am reading.

So here is the Dorm Room Book Club choice for the month of January, who will be reading with me?
