Weekly Feature & In My Mailbox #93

This has nothing to do with books, but being the huge sport fanatics we are I have to include this in my post...
The Rangers are going to the WORLD SERIES! They beat the Tigers 15-5 last night to clinch the West Division Champions Title. That win more than made up for the lose of my beloved Longhorns. Okay now book talk....
