At a Barnes and Noble in Santa Monica today they had the book, The World Series by Josh Leventhal on sale for $14.99. Maybe not a big deal but it had the 2005 World Series and the White Sox on the cover!!!! There were about six left, it was also on the shelf where if you bought three books you would get one book free.

They were on the Buy Three, Get One Free Shelf?! They are going to be hearing from Hangar about this. The Cubs would never be shoved off to a bargain shelf!

One of our vendors who sells books in our break room from time to time was at work today and she had copies of the book for sale. Haven't had a chance to really sit down and look through it yet but it looks to be an excellent book (and how about that awesome photo on the cover!!!).

One thing I've noticed about the book though is that some of the side features haven't been updated to include the 2005 Series, most notably the lists of World Series grand slam home runs and World Series walkoff home runs. Although these are not mentioned on the respective charts, they are both prominently mentioned in the writeup of the 2005 Series. There are also great photos of Jenks and AJ's bearhug after the final out and Uribe diving into the stands for that memorable second out.

I have the book and enjoyed it very much especially the details about the series from the 60's and 70's.
