Booking Through Thursday: Sports

Booking Through Thursday

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?

      I hear you! Superbowl commercials are the best!

      I suppose sports aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, especially when you’re not able to actually participate.

    I don’t even watch sports – never mind *reading* about them! [lol]

      Lol, a book about sports would have to have something special going for it for me to get into it. I couldn’t imagine reading a book just about like… batting averages. XD

        Maybe if you had trouble sleeping and didn’t want to take pills….?
