Zine Review: Bookstores and Baseball - The Fourth Inning
Bookstores and Baseball: The Fourth Inning
40 pages / full color
I’ve had the good fortune to read all five issues of Bookstores and Baseball, and this one is where the zine seemed to hit its stride & round the bases. David writes about the birth of his daughter Olivia, we get a battle of the book festivals, two articles written by David’s son Gabe, about abandoned ballparks and team mascots respectively, a visit to Book People books & more. David and Gabe’s writing tone is always spot on, it’s like listening in on a conversation unfolding in the author’s mind. Bookstores and Baseball is one of the best reads of the season – worthy of the world series.
