Hats off to Stanford’s own Andrew Luck for promoting the love of reading. Mr. Luck has started a book club via social media. He plans to introduce a book he enjoyed as a child for younger readers, as well as a book for more seasoned readers. According to his web site he’ll introduce a new book in stages that correspond with the NFL schedule: off-season, mini-camp, summer training and pre-season. He plans to bring in guest athletes to take over until after the Super Bowl. Participants may follow along on Facebook, Instagram and/or Twitter using #ALBookClub.
