What Have You Been Reading?

A good place to start this thing going that's not footie related might be asking what have you been reading lately. I got tipped to this book "Tulia" by Nate Blakeslee about a situation in a small town in Texas, where in one night 20 % of its black residents got rolled up in an anti-drug sting. But as it is turning out, the safeguards in the system completely failed and a corrupt and incompentent justice system put away innocent men simply because an admittedly troubled undercover cop gave testimony that they were guilty. On the bookshelf next is Adam Langer's "Washington Story" which is the next installment of a reported triology of books following 2004's "Crossing California." The great thing about "Crossing Ca" were the high school scenes. It's like it was Langer sitting next to me and cracking jokes at LHS instead of Mark Enderle and Alan Vanderpyl. As for footie related books, don't miss the opportunity to read David Winner's "Those Feet" which is essentially his theory supported by great anecdotes of why the English play the style of football the way they do. What have you read that you enjoyed? Lakenheath Old Boys
