Sunday night, the CDC recommended that in-person events that consist of 50 or more people should be canceled or postponed over the next eight weeks. That means there likely won’t be live sports for us to watch until at least May.
With all that social distancing and quarantining necessary over the next two months, Brandi Holtby and the Nationals’ Sean Doolittle shared their book lists on Twitter.
With no hockey to watch, I thought I would share the list of books I read last season. (Yes, my lists are based on hockey seasons, not calendar years) *** is for my favorites. Please share your recommendations! 💜 Stay healthy and be smart, everyone! pic.twitter.com/NA6sYr08kU

As an awkward dork with big introvert energy, reading has always been my preferred method of social distancing. Here’s what I was reading during Spring Training. And I’m currently reading Dopesick by Beth Macy. 🤓📚 pic.twitter.com/Ab8VdgmV9l
