The Los Angeles Times reports that the Los Angeles Public Library has put together a list of books that Kobe Bryant once recommended.
The creation of this list comes in wake of the tragic death of the basketball legend, who died last month in a helicopter crash. The LA Times adds that librarian Keith Kesler wrote in a blog post on the LA library's website about the decision to release this list:
“As one would expect from a passionate storyteller, Bryant also appreciated reading a good book. I searched through old interviews and social media posts to find the books that inspired the Black Mamba.”
The list includes 15 titles such as “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho, “The Tipping Point” and “Blink” by Malcolm Gladwell, and “Jonathan Livingston Seagull” by Richard Bach. See the attached tweet above to access the full list of Kobe Bryant's recommendations.
