The HBIC summer project is in full swing as I'm nearly finished the first book I want to get through over these next few months. I wanted to post a list of the books that I would like to tackle this summer that are already sitting on my bookshelf, as well as adding a few books of personal interest and a few books I still need to acquire if there is sufficient time to tackle them. Again, the reviews of these books will happen weekly on Wednesdays, so Teebz's Book Club will grow quite a bit over the summer. If you want to suggest a book, please leave the title and author's name in the comments! I'm always open to suggestions of good books, so please check the drop-down list to the right to see if I have already read through those books!
Here are, in no particular order, the list of books that I will be tackling over the summer in order to be more well-read when it comes to hockey literature.
