I love reading. I guess that's obvious from the fact that I blog - reading and writing go together quite well. I suppose my love of movies should have spurred an interest in making YouTube videos by now, but for now, I'll stay behind the keyboard, not in front of the camera.
I really haven't had much time for books, though reading blogs and online articles has kept me active. When I went back to the US about a year ago, I found a few more books to add to my collection, but they didn't make the trip with me back to Japan.
That's okay, because I've had several books waiting here. I've started a couple and never got through them all, but that didn't stop me from picking up a few more over the New Years holidays.
I managed to finish this book in less than three hours, cover to cover. And that included some pauses to have my light dinner, do a little internet searching based on what I read, and just take a couple breaks to rest my eyes. My knowledge of pre-Mantle baseball is limited, but I still did better than I thought when answering the questions.
The book offers up some interesting tidbits, and it's provided some ideas for posts or even a topical trading card set or collection. So while it went by quick just reading the book, I'll probably go back through in more detail later.
Those are 10 books currently in my library, but I must have at least 150 baseball books at this point. I haven't read most of the books I have, I think, because while I pick up books as I can, I just don't read as much as I'd like.
Perhaps I can change that this year. Okay, new goal decided right now: read at least one book a month. I guess that trivia book counts, since I read it a week ago; one down, eleven (or more) to go. Mickey Mantle, here I come...
Are you reading any baseball books right now?
