Review & Giveaway: My Paper Chase by Harold Evans



I'm a huge fan of memoirs. I love to read about someone else's life. My Paper Chase tells the story of Howard Evans who ran a newspaper and the struggles he faced daily. He charged on even when there was a chance that the newspaper would lose it's place in the world.

This was a very interesting book that allows you to look back in time and understand that nothing comes easy and everything has a price.
