Library Journal has this good review of the baseball books set to be released in 2008. It’s worth a read if, like me, you are prone to filling your shelves with baseball books that you may never read.

While I’m on the subject, I’m currently reading “Opening Day,” Jonathan Eig’s account of Jackie Robinson’s first season with the Brooklyn Dodgers. I’m almost two-thirds of the way through it, and it’s been excellent thus far.

Before that, I just finished “Ted Williams,” by Leigh Montville. Very, very good book about a man whose ideas on hitting and plate discipline were years before their time.
