Link Du Jour: Top 10 Sports Books
I like sports. I watch ESPN at levels the American Library Association has deemed medically unsafe for any librarian.
So this brings about a question.
Why is it that I always seem to miss great sports books for kids?
Thankfully, Booklist is willing to help me out with their recently-released Top 10 Sports Books for Youth. Iâ€™ve heard of a few (Black Jack: The Ballad of Jack Johnson, The Cardturner) but thereâ€™s a bunch here that completely flew under my radar. Glad to see folks out there giving the best books the attention they deserve.
