Luck’s New Book Club Is Young Readers’ Good Fortune

On Monday, the darling of the Indianapolis Colts, Andrew Luck, launched an online book club. Before you start questioning Luck’s agenda, let me clarify, this is not a club to promote or sell Luck books—he is a genuine and avid reader who wants to share the joy. The Wall Street Journal recently revealed Luck to be the “NFL’s unofficial librarian” because of his habit of recommending books in the locker room. You can read more about how the club came to be here.

Readers participate through social media and so far, the discussion looks like it’s buzzing!

    Reminds me of how Phil Jackson, former Bulls coach and a great reader himself, used to select books for players to read on plan trips. Michael Jordan was not much interested.
