Hockey Card Stories: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!*
Hockey Card Stories reveals what was really going on in your favorite old hockey cards through the eyes of the players depicted on them. Some of the cards are definitely worth a few bucks, some a few cents - but every story told here is priceless. Sportsnet’s Ken Reid presents the cards you loved and the airbrushed monstrosities that made you howl, the cards that have been packed away in boxes forever, and others you can’t believe ever existed. Whether it’s a case of mistaken identity or simply a great old photo, a fantastic 1970s haircut and ’stache, a wicked awesome goalie mask or a future Hall of Famer’s off-season fashion sense, a wide variety of players - from superstars like Bobby Orr, Denis Potvin, and Phil Esposito to the likes of Bill Armstrong who played only one game in the NHL - chime in on one of their most famous cards.
*Booktrack is an immersive listening experience that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music and sound effects. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.
What the critics say
“The cards alone might’ve been enough, but Reid takes it next-level by executing a simple but perfect idea: He talked to each and every one of the faces on the cards...This book’s a keeper.” (Edmonton Sun)

BOOKTRACK = THE MOST ANNOYING THING, EVER!!
Not-so-short and not-so-sweet; I HAD to return the Booktrack version of this book. It was easily THE most annoying thing I've ever experienced. CONSTANT ANNOYING MUSIC ON AN ENDLESS LOOP!! The music was JUST loud enough to not be background music and therefore interfered with actually listening to the narrator. Then, at about 4:30 BACKGROUND NOISES STARTED!!
So, if you want to simulate what it would be like to be at a coffee shop that plays the same annoying muzak on a constant loop while people talk, bang things and go about their lives, all the while you're trying to listen to a friend talk who has zero clue that they have to be talking just slightly louder for you to hear them, then by all means download the Booktrack version of all your favourite books. #ThisWasTheWorstThingSinceTheScratchAndSniffVersionOfEveryonePoops

Ken Reid is a master! He makes a great book full of hockey moments that will make you smile and laugh. Also he is the reader and it just makes the cards come to life. As a hockey nut I loved every second of this book and you will too...if you love hockey.
