I'd actually like to see the list go down, but it seems like for every book I read, I find two more I want to read. I can say that I look forward to anything new from Dean Koontz, Craig Johnson, and Brandon Sanderson. Whenever they release something, it tends to move to the top of my list.(less)

Early public education in Emmitsburg, Md.

Emmitsburg has always had plenty of schools. Of the 158 one-room schools in Frederick County in 1890 more than 20 were near Emmitsburg. This doesn’t even include the private and parochial schools in the town at the time.


In a 1908 article in the Emmitsburg Chronicle, an old-timer recalled his experiences with some of Emmitsburg’s early schools.


One school was on the former site of Helman’s store whe

Quotes by James Rada Jr.  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“I wish I knew. It’s almost like nature is trying to show us that she’s still more powerful than man. No matter how many of each other we kill in war, nature can still kill more of us. No matter how much we think we know about life, she still can make us look impotent.”
James Rada Jr., October Mourning: A Novel of the 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic
