May 2013 Read of the Month Review

I really enjoyed my May 2013 Read of the Month 100 Things Tiger Fans Should Know and Do Before They Die by Terry Foster.  Terry Foster is a local columnist for The Detroit News and afternoon radio host on 97.1 The Ticket.  He has been selling the books at local book stores and restaurants/bars in the local area.  I was able to pick two copies at the Allen Park Barnes and Noble (and have them signed by Mr. Foster).

I enjoyed Foster's book.  It is a great read for any Tiger fan.  I also loved the book as a fan of local history.  I really enjoyed how the book was a "history" text in disguise.  Not only did I learn a great deal about the Tigers (the book covers a larger period of time) but I also was able to read quite a bit about the history of Detroit.

The book is a really quick read, with a page or two dedicated to each of the "100 Things."  This means you can pick up the book and read a few sections here or there when you have time.  I think book would be a great Father's Day gift for any Dads that are Detroit Tiger fans out there.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I was able so squeeze a second book in this month, as I took the time to re-read most of The Great Gatsby.  I just have a few more pages to finish the book and once again I loved reading F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic.  Sadly, I have yet to see the new film, Iron Man 3 won out for my son's birthday.  Now I am off to find a book for June, happy reading!
