BOWLING FOR BOOKS


PBA STANDOUTS DISH ON THEIR FAVORITE TOMES.


////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Who knew that the


Professional Bowlers Association’s stars had the literary itch? That became apparent recently when many were asked to name their favorite books. A good number of the tour’s highest- profile players had answers as readily available as coaching tips or ball selections. Ryan Shafer’s choice


ranks among the most timely on the list — To Kill a Mockingbird. The author


of that classic, Harper Lee, now 89, recently stunned the literary establishment with the release of a new book, Go Set a Watchman, on July 14 after having vowed for decades never to release another in the wake of Mockingbird’s success. Rhino Page was particularly


forthcoming when he said, “I don’t like reading.” But, he said “the book about ESPN” — Those Guys Have all the Fun, by Andrew Miller and Tom Shales — was so good he “read


it within a month” despite its more than 800 pages in length.


PBA50 Tour standout and


former Major League Baseball All-Star, John Burkett, kicked Bowlers Journal a bone when he picked Pin Action: Small- Time Gangsters, High-Stakes Gambling, and the Teenage Hustler Who Became a Bowling Champion, by BJI Editor, Gianmarc Manzione. “It was a real fun book to read,” Burkett said.


JOHN BURKETT PBA50 Tour standout, John Burkett, named Pin Action by BJI Editor, Gianmarc Manzione, as his favorite book.


DOM BARRETT Dom Barrett is working on his mental game. From scratch, apparently. He said he had recently downloaded Sports Psychology for Dummies.


FOR PARKER BOHN III Parker Bohn III’s favorite book? “Of course, Bowling: How to Master the Game, by yours tru- ly,” he said.
