What I'm into right now: April has always meant baseball. As a lifelong Cubs fan, I always anxiously await the beginning of a new season. This April is unlike any that I've ever experienced because we start the season as World Champions. And we might even do it again this year! It is a great time to be a Cubs fan. These are some of my favorite books about my favorite sport, updated to include some brand new books about the best team in baseball!
