" 'Think Big' by Ben Carson is Dr. Carson's formula for success. The words 'think big' are an acronym. The acronym represents: T=talents and time, H=hope and honesty, I=insight, N=nice, K=knowledge, B=books, I=in-depth, G=God.

"I think you should read Sundiata: Lion King of Mali by David Wisniewski. It is a wonderful story that teaches valuable lessons. One is that you should never judge a person by the way that they appear physically. When Sundiata was young, he could not walk or talk, but he grew to become a great leader. The book also has astonishing and beautiful pictures and a detailed map, which shows the important things and places Sundiata finds on his adventures." -- Elizabeth Kimble Jeffers Hill Elementary "My favorite book is Ming Lo Moves the Mountain by Arnold Lobel.

Jermaine Carter liked the idea of playing with other Friendship Collegiate (D.C.) grads at Maryland, and staying close to home was a bonus, too. But his decision to commit to the Terps boiled down primarily to one reason. “The defense that they run, I'm kind of familiar with it,” Carter said. “My team runs a similar defense. … It's a 3-4.” Carter played the MIKE linebacker spot for Friendship Collegiate, calling the plays and making “the audibles if needed.” The future Terp relished his role as a defensive leader for the D.C. Statewide Athletic Association champions.

Today marks the fifth birthday of the Amazon Kindle -- the biggest change in the way we read since Penguin started selling paperbacks for the cost of a pack of smokes. I was a slow convert to e-books, but that's mainly an outgrowth of being able to receive free review copies than a Luddite stance. My wife has a Kindle (current selection: "Unbroken" by Laura Hillenbrand ) and I often read on my iPad. As I've noted on Read Street, e-readers have their shortcomings: -- I can't leave a Kindle lying on a beach towel when I jump into the water at Ocean City.
