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.
