Friday News: 2 inspirational videos, a Reader Review program, and an ebook comparison site
Given that news makes you depressed, I thought I would share two videos with you that I thought were particularly inspiring. The first was recorded last night, I believe, and is the beginning of the Boston Bruins game. The singer begins the national anthem but the crowd begins to sing along and when they do, the singer turns off his microphone and you hear the entire hockey rink filled with the chorus of voices.
This second video is from New Zealand who just passed a gay marriage rights bill. The balcony breaks out “Pokarekare Ana”, a traditional Maori love song. The lady in the video being hugged is one of the lawmakers who sponsored the bill.
You apply for the program by writing a review for a book selected by Open Road and then every month you get a NetGalley widget to receive one or two digital review copies. In exchange you have to post a revew at “Goodreads, a personal blog, or on a retail site.”
