Here’s to the ‘winners’

February 10, 2014 · 1 comment

Awhile back I notched my 100,000th visitor. To celebrate the occasion, I put up copies to The Kid: The Immortal Life of Ted Williams, by Bill Bradlee Jr., and The 34-Ton Bat: The Story of Baseball as Told Through Bobbleheads, Cracker Jacks, Jockstraps, Eye Black, and 375 Other Strange and Unforgettable Objects, by Steve Rushin, to the Bookshelf readers who I figured came closest to the mark (without doing the actual study to determine who, in fact, was the 100,000th).

So thanks to everyone who wrote in and congratulations to our two “winners,” Stuart Schiffman and Greg Macedo.

Look for more Bookshelf giveaways in the weeks and months ahead. Good for you, in that you get new books, and good for me, in that my wife is happy I’m decluttering.

Be sociable, share the Bookshelf!

    Nice! – “34 Ton Bat” is on my list – the Ted book is a project to read – might give the audio a try. It is early yet, but the titles for this Spring are starting to appear. The Prospectus is a good place to start. No more football, no hockey right now; a tough winter — we need some baseball – even if it is in written form.
