The Return of RBR Reading Room

What a desolate place this is...

With the conclusion of the A-Day game the long horrid off season stretches out interminably before us once again. It's going to be a hard slog this year given the outcome of 2010 and the promise 2011 holds for our beloved Crimson Tide. 

Yet never fear! The Roll Bama Roll Reading Room is set to return this week to help you survive the ordeal. We've got 19 books on tap to be reviewed and plan on posting a new one each and every Tuesday morning from now until the week the season begins. The primary focus will remain on books about the Crimson Tide but this year will also see the inclusion of a few books that look at college football in a historical context. 

Over the past two off seasons we've amassed reviews of 30 books that mostly concentrate on Alabama football but there are a handful that look at the wider sport as well. So if you can't wait for this year's offerings we urge you to check out the Reading Room archives (available here or in handy graph form after the jump).
