During the summer months we’re fortunate enough to receive anywhere from 14 to 16 hours of daylight in many parts of this country we call America. From that early morning ride via public transit on the way to work to being posted up on the porch sipping lemonade, the daylight provides an ample opportunity for one to break out a book and get lost in some words. We’ve profiled many a book here on The Sports Fan Journal in the past, but today we’re giving you a sneak peek into what we’re currently reading.

From sports books focusing on historical athletes to various philosophies that implore you to escape to a different mind-set, here are the 9 books we’re currently reading in the TSFJ e-offices. Be sure to check them out.

    1. Ha, I read all sorts of business. I love all the Chuck Palahniuk books (Fight Club author), read tons of sports books, have read all the Best American Sportswriting books, including the one Dillon is reading, just got done Ghandi’s autobiography, “My Experiments With Truth,” and can’t wait to read the JFK book. The more books the merrier.

  1. I had the pleasure of meeting Buzz Bissinger and David Halberstam during my days at Penn State. Both men came in and spoke at a lecture for journalism and specifically sports journalism students, which was real cool. This was before Buzz’s meltdowns on blogging and social media, since they were in infancy back then, and Buzz was actually really relaxed and self-deprecating.

    Halberstam was just awesome, talking about everything from sportswriting to Watergate to Vietnam and all sorts of awesome stuff. He was one of the most gracious and informative speakers I ever encountered.
