The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based list of titles available only on-line. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive for lists from previous months.

Sweatier Socks: Books on Sports II.
selected by Deborah Stevenson

Last month was nonfiction, this month is fiction, for those looking to expand beyond Matt Christopher, Thomas Dygard, and John R. Tunis. We've tried to get some breadth in both sports featured (there's fencing, skiing, and T-ball as well as hoops and diamond action) and age of literary audience. Disappointed that there aren't more books here featuring girls? We were too, and we hope next time we do this list there will be, so go forth and write some.
