  • Great Big Sea – Road Stories

    A Newfoundlander in Canada by Alan Doyle I wasn’t sure what to expect when I picked up this book by the lead singer of Great Big Sea. I was hoping to get a glimpse into the iconic Canadian band. It would have been nice to see how they grew into the juggernaut that they became. […]

    Free Magazines on Your Phone (from Libby)

    I used to love reading magazines. When I was a teenager, The Source Magazine was pretty much required reading. It was a great way to find out about rap music releases and artists.
