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.

Sweat Socks: Books on Sports I.
selected by Deborah Stevenson

Sometimes it doesn't seem like there's much middle ground between tomes of pure statistics and stories where a basketball dribbles through briefly. We've compiled two lists of books that happily sweat their way through that middle ground; this month is nonfiction and next month will be fiction. Included are broad social overviews of sports, biographies, photessays, and how-to texts, so we hope there will be something there for just about everybody. On your mark, get set, go!
