My wife and I drove down to Jacksonville Beach today, ate lunch at Chick Fil-A, and then went to a Books-A-Million to browse around.
The first thing I noticed were the clearance racks out front, with books ranging from $1 to $5 on the shelves.
On the $2 rack I saw what will be my 1st baseball book of 2011, "Perfect," the story of Don Larsen's perfect game in the 1956 World Series.
I have read just 6 pages, but already, I really like this book.
It was written by Lew Paper, a Harvard Law School graduate who has also written books about John F. Kennedy, and CBS-TV.
What a bargain, a great book about the grand game of baseball, and the grandest of all World Series games, Game 5, Larsen's gem, a game forever etched in baseball history...and, did I mention, it cost $2.00...what a deal.
What are you reading this year?
Feel free to let me know what baseball books you're currently reading, or have read the past year or so, that you enjoyed.
