bookshelves: gym-books

Steven James writes the sort of book I love to read at the gym. To motivate myself to get to the gym regularly, I have "gym-only" books--books I only allow myself to read if I am actually working out. I pick suspense-filled, fast-paced ones that make me want to get to the next chapter. James' books, including The Rook, fit the bill nicely, even though they are probably grittier than I would read at home. I, unfortunately, read this one out of order (I mistakenly thought that The Knight would come before The Rook on the assumption that James was working his way up from lowest value chess piece to highest value chess piece. What was he thinking?) so I might have lost a little of the value of surprise in both reads.
