I like to read. I like to read about different things. I really like to read about golf. I find most of my information on-line, however there is nothing like reading a real book. The feel of the paper, the smell of the pages, and the durability of a book is unmatched by electronics.
Generally, I will read a book or two over the year that is recommended by one of my readers. I find that if they recommend a book, it should be worth reading. With the passing of the Christmas season, many of you received a book or two from “Elwin the Elf” and are ready to snuggle up under a blanket and read away! What would you do if you received 6 books for Christmas!
Padraig MacLochlainn and I converse often. We discuss golf, the weather, golf, other topics and golf. Reading about his golfing adventures helps pass the long cool winters where I live. Padraig and his brother Gary were both featured in a previous post. Recently Padraig indicated he received 6 books for Christmas! He sent me a tweet with the covers of the books:
Sadly, I have to admit that I have not read any of these books. I think I will have to add them to my list, but I think I might wait until Padraig recommends his favorite. If he is like me, it will take a bit of time, but I will wait patiently for his decision.
Another previous post dealt with lists of books recommended by The Grateful Golfer. Fortunately, several readers provided their recommendation in the comments.
Have any of you read any of Padraig’s books?
Did you receive any golf books as a gift lately? If so, what are their titles? And as important, do you recommend them as a must read?
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
