9 posts | 1 read
It's the book in which America's favorite sportswriter returns to the arena of his most successful bestseller, A Season on the Brink. It's the book that takes us inside the intensely competitive Atlantic Coast Conference & paints a portrait of how college baskettball is coached & played at the highest level. It's the book that takes us onto the courts, into the locker rooms, & inside the high-pressure world of the talented coaches who have helped make the ACC's nine colleges - Duke, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Virginia, Maryland, Wake Forest, & Florida State - world-renowned for their championship basketball teams. The author's afterword to this edition will recap the ACC's current season & preview the 1998-99 rivalries.

March #bookspin list! Basing this month on the books I got at the library book sale. Determined to actually read the books I bought before looking for more! 😊 I have already finished one, so swapped in another from the same author.

I plan to join in on the #MarchMadness readathon, but since I'll be in the Philippines for 10 days, I'll keep my goals simple. I plan to take books with me of course, it's a 20+ hour flight after all, but once I get there I don't know how much reading I'll get done between sightseeing and eating. I will try to finish 5 books and read over 60 hours.
Good luck to everyone joining in.

Zoes_Human I was wearing a tennis skirt and a t-shirt COMFORTABLY all day yesterday. 72 in February in WNC makes me nervous. If I disappear this summer, it's probably because of spontaneous combustion. 1mo
BarkingMadRead I made mine before I left for Disney but I didn‘t take a pic 🤣 can‘t wait! 1mo
SpookyMazeOfBooks Can't wait , to see what books I get because I feel like I'm out of that reading slump. 1mo

I set my #20in4 goals low and still didn‘t meet them all! I did finish Rage Becomes Her and The Other Bennet Sister, my main goals. I caught up on This Life but not 1619. I started Gods in Everyman. Overall decent reading for a really busy weekend. Thanks @Andrew65 for hosting!
