Two years ago the Sabres were dead before we could even celebrate our first birthday. Suddenly we were trying to figure out what the hell we were going to talk about over the summer. What we decided to do was read, then post about the mostly-sports books we picked. For the last two summers we’ve done the Reading With the Roost series with mixed results.
We only read six on that list and only posted about five of them. In other words, we sucked. But we plan on changing that this year. The last year has not been kind to us when it comes to casual reading, but we think the summer will be kind to us. Here are some obvious picks for the list:
“Gretzky’s Tears” by Stephen Brunt
“The Breaks of the Game” by David Halberstam
“The Book of Basketball: The NBA According to The Sports Guy” by Bill Simmons
“Are We Winning?” by Will Leitch
These are already books we have on the shelf and have ready to roll, but of course we’re looking for a few suggestions from our readers. Anything you have on your reading list this summer? Let us know and we might add it to the list, which we should have together by the end of the week.
This is a really fun way to pass the time over the summer, and we hope you will play along at home.
