FAQ

A list of Frequently Asked Questions about this wiki and our Book Lovers Summer Reading Club.

The Booklovers Summer Reading Club ended on September 15th, 2006 with raffle drawings. This wiki is being left active as an archive -- our intention with this wiki was to create a "snapshot in time" of what our club members read during the summer.

 

We did not create a wiki for the 2007 version of the PPL Summer Reading Program, Read Around the World. We upgraded our catalog to include reviews. Thus reviews for summer reading are now being entered directly to our catalog. Hope you will join us!

 

  FEATURED REVIEW

Flushed: How the Plumber Saved Civilization by W. Hodding Carter

What can I possibly say? If ever there was a book that provided "too much information" W. Hodding Carter's fascinating book, Flushed: how the plumber saved civilization, fits that description! Everything you wanted (or in some cases) didn't want to know about the history of toilets and plumbing can be found in this book. After reading a few pages I was hooked on Carter's style, wit and insight to a topic that I never gave much thought to yet appreciate on a daily basis. And just think of the endless dinner conversation it will provide: from why do people shake hands with their right hand to explaining Roman latrines were set up for conversation. It's not a waste...read the book! Recommended. Reviewed by Dan Bauer.
