    Figure Skating Books You Can't Wait to Read

    Ah, the WTT. What a fitting end to the season!

    Now it's time for me to catch up on my reading.

    is sending me a bootlegged translation of what she says Russian figure skaters and their coaches regard as a cult classic. I'm not sure who the author is or what the original title is, but the translation is called Always Use Gloves. It sounds fascinating, and I can't wait to read it.

    Here are a few other books I can't wait to read.

    Pithy Remarks for Every Occasion, by Scott Moir (with an afterword by Eric Radford)
    How I Broke My Potato's Damnation, by Michal Březina
    The Well-Constructed Free Program, by Ksenia Makarova
    Going Full Circle, by Ksenia Makarova
    Landing on My Own Two Feet, by Ashley Wagner
    Choosing the Agent That's Right for You, by Laura Lepistö
    Pain-Free for Life!, by Evgeni Plushenko
    The Old Lady and the Dirty Old Man: The Complete Correspondence of Yana Khokhlova and Nikolai Morozov, edited by Nikita Katsalapov

    If you have any recommendations, please post them here.
