Followers of the site may have noticed I’ve been writing fewer articles in the last couple weeks, and there’s one major reason. I wrote a book.
It’s the first in a series, and it’s called Big Blue Articles: Kentucky Basketball in the 2012 NCAA Tournament. It features heavily revised versions of some articles featured on this site, along with a number of completely new articles, player pages, and statistics from the tournament. It’s basically a handbook that provides a useful and detailed guide through Kentucky’s championship run.
Unlike a lot of other books being produced that are also centered the championship run, this one is more about the stories than the pictures. There is a lot of text and a lot of content, making it the hardcore fan’s book, not the casual observer’s. In total there are more than 60 articles, more than 35,000 words, and more than 120 pages. It’s a great read (I’ve been told), and it should prove an interesting gift for the Kentucky fans in your life.
Basically. It’s big, it’s blue, and it’s $11.99 on Amazon.
And as a reward for reading this far, here’s a 40 page preview of the book to give you an idea what you’re getting.
