Monday Book News: The Only “Game” in Town

It's Martin Luther King Jr. Day, which means most of you are staying home and not playing on the internet or hanging out with friends, but reading and watching the words of the late reverend while pondering his message of hope and love for all races.

But, in case some of you are trolling online — perhaps to Google "I have a dream" or check Wikipedia to follow up on the conspiracy theories about King's assassination or search YouTube for the video of that U2 song about him (no, no, the other one!) — this is pretty much the only book-related bit of news I've got for you.
