Now Reading: Jim Bouton & Eliot Asinof – Strike Zone

strike-zone-jim-bouton-and-eliot-asinof-e1329777352178I had a bit of a book-buying-spree last week (someone really needs to stop me!) and bought quite a few baseball books. I’ve read a few in the past (like Josh Hamilton and Dirk Hayhurst) and loved them, so I wanted to read more. The only problem is that it’s quite hard to find them in the UK, so I ended up buying them second hand on Amazon. This one arrived before all the others, for some reason Amazon sent this one by Royal Mail and the others by Yodel. I’ll probably find the others in my bin later this week, if Yodel’s track record is anything to go by.

On a related note, I was quite annoyed to read a lot of tweets this week about people receiving the new Dirk Hayhurst book (Out of My League) in the mail. Amazon says that mine won’t be dispatched until 6th March. I know that it might take longer with it being an American book, but I pre-ordered it at the end of October, so why should I have to wait 2 weeks longer than everyone in America to read it? I guess I’ll just have to be patient!
