I don't do books on here anymore (I have another blog for that, and other things), but two of them came in a surprise package the other day, and since they're sports related, and from someone whose primarily known (at least in our small blogging circle) for being a card blogger; I thought I'd make an exception.
Given his former place of employment (a bookstore), I'm not overly surprised that, Rod, the always generous soul behind Padrographs, would be sending out some books, I'm just surprised that some of those books would've made their way to me.
First up was "Baseball's Hometown Teams", which as I mentioned to Rod in a follow-up email, is a book that I had been hoping to come across in the wild for what seemed like years.
There are not a lot of books out there that cover the minor leagues, and while I've been under impression that this one isn't the most in-depth of that small number, I've figured that it's still gonna cover some stuff that I don't know, and would therefor still be worth getting. Thanks to Rod, I no longer have to keep an eye out for it.
With very little synopsis here, I took a few pictures of the book's innards to give you some sense of what's going on inside...
I don't like reading similar topics one after another, so either of these will make for a nice 180 from the book that I'm currently reading, "Macbeth", once I'm finished. I'll probably go with the Hometown Teams, if only because I've wanted to read it for longer.
At this point in my life, books are probably my favorite thing to get in the mail, and even more so when they're unexpected. So, many thanks to, Rod, not only for sending said unexpected books, but also just for thinking of me in general; that means quite a bit, too!
