  • Book Report: Population:485

    by Michael Perry.

    Written by a guy that is a volunteer FF/EMT in a small WI town. He gets a little fancy with the words and a little like Tom Bodet with the small town stories but he covers a lot of what it is like to volunteer in a small town.

    Some really funny tales and some definitely sad times but a good read for winter. His remarks on the diversity of folks who volunteer are right on the head, as are his explanation of why he volunteers. I could line a lot of his characters up with folks in my dept.
    The winner is not the person with the most gold when he dies, but rather, the most stories

      Ok.........

      On the inside First page or two, there is a IBN Number. Sort of a Social Security number for books. Also on the same page should be the name of the publishing house. If someone could post that info here, it would be a great help to anyone who wants to find it. Thanks.

                              Bought it last night when I got home from work and started reading it. Couldn't put it down, I probably would have read the whole thing if I didn't have training at 7. Can't wait to finish it up tonight.
