Don't know what to read on the beach? No worries, here's some inspiration @Bookish http://ow.ly/lVPnD
Ever been so deeply engrossed in a novel that you just don't want it to end? Some novels are so Brobdingnagian in size (and entertainment value), they practically don't. With vacations on our calendars and the days growing longer, summer is the ideal time to dive into a giant, sprawling narrative. From sweeping portraits of 19th century England and Civil War-era American South, to gripping stories of dark magic and epic post-apocalyptic conflict,...

Are you looking for a date? Why don't you try to pick someone up with a great book? http://ow.ly/ltZJ3
Anyone can borrow their friend's puppy for the day and walk around a crowded park waiting for throngs of oglers to descend, but it takes a certain subtlety and finesse to attract someone with a book. What you're reading says, in so many words (har), who you are: what you're interested in, what you like to think about, what you want from life and more. Which books have the strongest magnetic pull?

826 National: Writing, Publishing, Tutoring
Introduction
826 National is a nonprofit organization that provides strategic leadership, administration, and other resources to ensure the success of its network of eight writing and tutoring centers. 826 centers offer a variety of inventive programs that provide under-resourced students, ages 6-18, with opportunities to explore their creativity and improve their writing skills. We also aim to help teachers get their classes excited about writing.

Our mission is based on the understanding that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention, and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success.

Last year our centers—which are located in 
Ann ArborBostonChicagoLos AngelesNew YorkSan FranciscoSeattleand Washington, DC— served over 29,000 students.
