#UWBookMadness | Friday Night Lights by H.G. Bissinger | Category: Books on TV | What is a book about football doing at The Dance? For starters, it’s a great sports book that follows one season of the Odessa, Texas Permian Panthers, the winningest football team in the state. More than that, however, the book examines the way the team shapes and is shaped by a town that holds football sacred.

“The solemn ritual made them seem like boys going off to fight a war for the benefit of someone else, unwitting sacrifices to a strange and powerful god.” Walking up to the Captains coin flip, everyone can feel it. That sense of urgency and the will to win that these boys have. Thousands of fans standing all around. There is no other feeling like it and these players wouldn't give that up for the world.

Not the eloquent writing skill of Rushdie, but impressive for a book written in the author's second language. Waiting is set in China and deeply examines a man's wait to end his practical but loveless marriage for his longtime lover.

#UWBookMadness Animal Farm by George Orwell | Category: Required Readings | In this political satire, the early history of the Soviet Union becomes a farmyard allegory.

Pop Culture Connection: Animal Farm was the first novel that I read by Orwell. Brilliantly composed, he predicted, retold, and mocked the story of Stalin during World War II.

#UWBookMadness | A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson | Category: Glass Half Full | A middle aged, perhaps somewhat out of shape man, decides to hike the Appalachian Trail. No inner turmoil drives Bill Bryson’s decision, there’s no trauma to overcome, no ghosts to put to bed. He simply felt an urge to hike the longest trail in US and attempted it. Bryson is funny for nearly every mile of this epic hike, offering observations on the state of American trails and more.
