In a spirited round of voting, you the esteemed readers of this site have chosen the book with the longest title possible. Our first offseason selection is The Universal Baseball Association, Inc., J. Henry Waugh, Prop. by Robert Coover.

Though the book was reprinted in 2011, it was originally published in 1968, which might mean it’s not lingering on many bookstore shelves near you. As always, I suggest finding your closest library to attain a copy, because libraries are magical. If you want this one for the bookshelf, you can find an independent retailer to get you a copy and keep your money in your community. If you’re okay with my mild judgment, you can throw more money at the corporate behemoth that will eventually own the rights to our lives and purchase it from Amazon.

At 256 pages, this doesn’t seem like a long read, so let’s all plan to meet here, same Tribe place, same Tribe channel, the week of Thanksgiving for a review and hopefully some discussion in the comments about the book. Until then, happy reading.
