#Curling Book Reviews

As the curling librarian, I think it's time I brought a little more librarian to this here corner of the internet! So what does that mean?

I'm going to start doing curling book reviews!!

I'm going to pick a different curling related book each month during this curling season. I'll write up a bit about the author and the contents of the book, then give my impressions and recommendations (or not).

I plan on getting most of the books out of the public library, but I do own a few myself (and I'll let you know if I own the book or not, as that might say something about it's worth as well). I'll even take recommendations in the comments section. There's quite a few curling books out there, so if this whole concept goes over well, I might have to double up each month, or save some for next season.

I hope you enjoy reading along with me - be sure to check out the books at your local library or favourite bookstore!

*Curling book titles are so super awesome cheesy - what would you name your curling book?


  1. My pulp novel about the Team Holland Detective Agency is tentatively titled "On the Rocks."

    I would like to see a review of "The Adventures of Trefor the Curling Stone" and "Abby and the Curling Chicks."

  2. I've heard of those books before - I would love to review them! I'll have to track down copies...

    1. Hey Lisa,
      Just found your blog and read this post about reviewing books. I wrote "Abby and the Curling Chicks" and would be happy to give you a copy. I think our paths may cross this season on the CCA trail, so I'll make sure I have a copy with me. Moose Jaw, maybe?
      Great blog!
      (also, www.grassrootscurling.blogspot.com and @grassrootscurl)

    2. Great Jean - I'd love to review your book! We'll catch up down the road before too long I suspect!

  3. My curling book is titled Pride, Prejudice, and Curling Rocks and it will be in print in December. /ad

    And I've read those two works of fiction... Trefor is easy to get, but I had to mail the author of Abby a check to get that one. (Had to figure out how to put it in an envelope and put proper postage on it and everything! :)

  4. Andy, is your book fiction?

  5. I could have sworn I answered that question... But, yes it is. And it's on Amazon now too.

    If you want a review copy, send me an email. :)
