Sports Books for the Holidays – issue October 15; reservations deadline today: September 30

“When done right, sportswriting transcends bats and balls to display all the traits of great literature: incision, wit, force and vision, suffused with style and substance,” the editors of Sports Illustrated wrote.

Novels, history, sports almanacs, memoirs and biographies all make for excellent holiday giving. Baseball fans get a midwinter fix, football fans devour even more in the lead-up to the Superbowl, NCAA enthusiasts are itching toward March Madness… All manner of sports fans—those who can’t get enough of tennis, basketball, ice hockey, boxing, horseracing, NASCAR and more—are looking forward to this holiday season’s new sports titles.

And this year, the world looks to Russia for the February Winter 2014 Olympics, renewing interest in Olympics sports—figure skating, Alpine and cross-country skiing, bobsledding, luge, speed skating and so much more.
