Budget Textbooks

I hate paying for textbooks. During my first semester of university I, stupidly, purchased all of my books from the school bookstore for over $500. By my last year in Graduate School, my bill was down to roughly $10 a semester. The major you choose does impact your textbook bill (Sorry Engineering Majors. It’ll pay off in the long run!). However, the following tips should, at the very least, help shave a few dollars off your textbook bill.Read More

Books to Celebrate the Great American Eclipse!

The Great American Eclipse is almost here, which makes now the perfect time to pick up a book about a popular and fascinating topic: space.

When I was younger, one of my favorite books was Every Soul a Star by Wendy Mass. It tells the story of three young teens who visit the Moon Shadow Campground to view a rare solar eclipse in totality. The way the author described the beauty of an eclipse and the science behind it made me very interested in learning more about them. I looked up future eclipse dates to find out if I would ever get the chance to see one myself. I was so excited when I saw that, in 2017, an eclipse’s path of totality would pass directly through Wyoming—but at the time it seemed so far away!Read More

Hey, Who You Callin’ an Old Book?!

Hello. My name is History of Rochester.  I happen to be the oldest book in the Laramie County Library. Yes sir, I was printed in 1838.  That means your grand pappy’s grand pappy was a young man.

I’m writing for one reason. I have a bone to pick with the library world…Read More
