Carbondale: Summer Reading Program

I was required to do a summer reading program because of my poor reading skills.  The problem was not that I didn't comprehend what I was reading, but I read so slowly I didn't get a chance to answer all the questions on the timed tests they kept giving us.  I don't know if it helped much, I still read slowly.  However at the end of the course the instructor offered my a choice of two books--a Civil War Book or a Yogi Bera how to play baseball book.  I selected the latter, and used it considerably playing and coaching baseball  However I always had some regrets that I didn't get the Civil War book.  I had told the instructor those were the two subjects I was interested in.
