This weeks BTT asks:
1. Do you read books about sports?
2. How about AT sporting events? (Kid’s soccer practice?)
While I am a fan of some sports, primarily soccer, football, NASCAR and hockey, I don’t generally read books about those or any other sports. That’s not to say that I wouldn’t read a book about them if it caught my eye, but to this point I haven’t found anything that has really caught my interest. I have read books with characters who are athletes, but those weren’t really about the sports.
As far as reading at sporting events, that’s something I haven’t done either. When I go to the races or hockey games, etc I’m generally there for that event and I’m not likely to break out a book while I’m there – not to mention it would be so loud and crazy that it would be tough to focus on a book. However, were I to say, take my brother to his sports practice, yeah I’d probably break out a book. Other than that, the only time I’ll read during a sporting event is if I’m watching it at home. Then I can read during commercials and such and if I miss anything… well I can rewind and watch it. Oh the joys of technology, lol!
What’s your take on sports books and reading while observing them?
