Over the weekend, I finished a book that I have been savoring. I got the book for Christmas and have restrained myself from reading it cover-to-cover in a single session because it is so enjoyable. The book is:
The Jim Murray Reader by Jim Murray (naturally)
For those of you who are too young to know Jim Murray, he was a writer for Sports Illustrated in the 50s and a columnist for the LA Times from the mid-60s to the 90s. He was one of the first sports columnists to be syndicated nationally.
The Jim Murray Reader is a compilation of 88 of his columns. I read 4 of them at first and then “rationed them” to 2 per reading session after that simply because they are so good.
I recommend this book unequivocally. Here is a link where you can order it online. I do not receive any compensation or consideration from amazon.com for the link here. I present it only because it is a convenient way to acquire this excellent book.
