I am reading John Grisham's 2003 novel Bleachers. It's not a legal book. In my opinion, some of his best books are when he strays from the law. Such as The Painted House and Skipping Christmas. He really proves he is a decent writer. And so far this book isn't disappointing me. It's set in Texas in a little town 9,000 pop. with a 10,000 seat football stadium at the high school. It's about a former football hero returning home to deal with his demons with the death of the local football coach legend. It's a small book, and light. But I am enjoying this read so far. And I am a fan of football so this is making for some great escapism reading.
