Announcing Book Discussion Forums

I'm happy to announce a new online MWSA activity. There will be four Book Forum Discussions on our site this year. It will work this way...we will announce the book to be discussed. The author will do his/her best to provide it to MWSA members at a good price. Members who want to participate will buy a copy and read it before participating in the forum which I will moderate and the author will be available to answer questions.

Introductions: Bob MacPherson 

First, let me say that as a new MWSA member, I’m looking forward to learning from others, to reading authors’ books and other creative works. Second, I’m eternally grateful to all submariners who’ve sailed beneath the ocean blue, including those who are “standing watch on eternal patrol.”

Reading Buddies: Investing in the Future

By the time I was eight years old I had hunted bear with bow and arrow, ridden across the open plains upon magnificent horses, and hacked my way through lion infested jungles. By the time I was ten years old, distant lands were no longer foreign and the world had become my playground.  All this and more I accomplished solely through reading without ever leaving my home. As a kid, books were my escape from a quarreling family and chaotic life. It wasn’t until later that I realized how my early love of reading had paved the way for my achievements in adulthood.
