The beginning of the hockey season not only sees the return of sticks and skates to the ice, but a whole slew of new hockey books on store shelves. And based on some early sneak peeks, the 2013 hockey book season promises to be a good year for readers.
For the unitiated I also a run a website called Hockey Book Reviews.com where I work with publishers and authors to promote their titles. I recently just finished an interesting book for hockey history fans and hockey fighting fans alike called I take a look at the new book "Don't Call Me Goon: Hockey's Greatest Enforcers, Gunslingers and Bad Boys"
For a list of the 2013 hockey titles click here. I am particularly looking forward to titles from Mark Howe and Chris Nilan, as well as D'Arcy Jenish's new history piece The NHL: A Centennial History.
I provide direct Amazon and Chapters links for online purchases, with the site earning a small percentage of each sale. If you are a fan of either of my sites, please consider making your online purchase via these links as it helps to make the websites self-sustainable.
Remember - there are only 15 Saturdays left before Christmas! So come back to Hockey Book Reviews.com often and decide which books you will get the hockey fans on your shopping list this year.
Also: The Vancouver Canucks recently visited the communities of Prince Rupert and Haida Gwaii, British Columbia. I was there and covered the event for Black Press and for CanucksArmy.com. Check out my article on the events and the amazing impact a hockey team can have on a community.
