Bruins Booksmith!

Chilling my my gnomies
While doing research for this blog post I discovered a list of the Bruins favorite books compiled by the Mass State Library system to encourage kids to read more.

Milan Lucic's fave? Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss. Johnny Boychuk recommended Old Yeller (in case breaking Penguin hearts isn't enough). Tyler Seguin recommended The Alchemist.

But it's an old list, and lacking in some important players. Would Tuukka like the Moomins? Maybe Horton digs Chuck Palahniuk's Fight Club, and maybe Chara keeps Roald Dahl's BFG on his nightstand.

Upstairs we have a sports section with some cool histories of hockey and the Bruins in particular, and if you want suggestions for Finnish literature I got that in spades. More bear related books are here.

Either way, tonight's a big night for our ice skating bears so here are my recommendations for the team:
  • Getting Things Done by David Allen
  • Winning by Jack Welch
  • The Success Principles by Jack Canfield
