In a day that featured breaking news in the U.S. Appeals court reinstating Tom Brady’s four-game suspension as a result of Deflategate in the 2014 playoffs and Sam Bradford requesting to be traded from the Eagles, the least surprising news might have come from Colts quarterback Andrew Luck.

The former Stanford standout revealed that he has started his own book club in an attempt to share books he enjoyed growing up with fans through social media.

According to the book club’s website, Luck says he got the idea after an interview he had with NBC Sports Network’s Men in Blazers, who during the interview joked about Luck’s love for reading.

Luck will have a book for younger folks (Maniac Magee) and one for seasoned readers (The Boys in the Boat).  Luck says he will host a Q&A once in awhile to have a live discussion with the fans who participate in the club.

However, once the season begins, Luck will bring in guest athletes to take over the book club until the end of the Super Bowl.

That is best since he will have his own “playbook” club with the Colts offense.
