A long wait can cause a certain minor problem, though, as evidenced by the book I just picked up. I got a notification email the other day informing me that Class A had arrived and was available for pickup. I had no memory of putting a book with that title on hold, nor could I imagine what it was even about. Something about Boy Scout uniforms? Seemed unlikely.
Anyway, now that I have it in hand, I know what it's about and I remember why I thought it sounded interesting. The full title gives the subject away: Class A: Baseball in the Middle of Everywhere. The author spent a year embedded with the Clinton LumberKings, a Midwest League minor league in Iowa, affiliated with the Seattle Mariners. I might have been interested regardless of which team the author followed -- I like behind-the-scenes business books -- but I was particularly interested because the team in question was not just from Iowa, which I retain a great fondness for after having gone to college there, but in Clinton, which is a town I drove through many, many times on my way to and from my alma mater.
It'll be a little while before I get to it, though; I need to finish This Town: Two Parties and a Funeral—Plus, Plenty of Valet Parking!—in America's Gilded Capital first, and then I've got Scott Berg's new biography of Woodrow Wilson waiting. There are 222 people waiting for the former, and 36 for the latter, so clearly they have priority.
