Patriots coach Bill Belichick was dismissive when asked by reporters Wednesday whether he might consider purchasing Tom Brady’s new lifestyle book.

“We see Tom every day,”Belichick replied. “I don’t really feel like I need to read a book.”

Some dogged Patriots beat reporter followed up with the Patriots quarterback on the subject later Wednesday afternoon. Brady, who said last year he got his favorite Christmas present from Belichick, suggested he might return the favor

“I don’t know,” he said. “Maybe I’ll give it to him for Christmas or something.”

The shrugging quarterback appeared less than determined to follow through on that plan.

And given his coach’s enthusiasm for caroling, it’s unlikely he’d even have time to read around the holidays. Belichick probably wouldn’t want to drink that much water anyway.
