I do love the Olympics though. Every time they come around, winter or summer, our whole family gathers around the TV to watch even the most obscure events. (Team Handball is one of my husband's favorites).
Anyway, to get ready I thought we could spend today's Monday Discussion talking about our favorite "sports books." I put the term in quotes because I want you to define what fits. It can have sports as the main plot, or a sport can simply play a memorable role. You choose.
Here is a list of some of the books I have reviewed (and enjoyed) which featured sports:
- A Few Seconds of Panic by Stephan Fatsis
- The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach
- Wait Till Next Year by Doris Kearns Goodwin
- The Housekeeper and the Professor by Yoko Ogawa
Another one of my all time favorites, which I have read many times, is The Iowa Baseball Confederacy by W.P. Kinsella.
Here are a few other sports related posts I have done on RA for All in the past:
