Booking It--Olympic Reading

You may have noticed–the Winter Olympics are going on. Is that affecting your reading time? Have you read any Olympics-themed books? What do you think about the Olympics in general? Here’s your chance to discuss!

(And for the record? My favorite Olympics book is Joy Goodwin’s The Second Mark which tells the story of the three figure skating pairs involved in the 2002 Salt Lake City controversy. The controversy is actually the smallest part of the story–the fascinating part is learning about the training of the three teams–Canadian, Russian, and Chinese. Just saying. And yes, I AM watching the Olympics on tv each night.)

Yes, I have noticed. No, it's not affecting my reading time. And no, I haven't read any Olympic-themed books.

Well, that didn't take long.

I'm not sure I've ever come across an Olympic themed book. Anyway, I've got my head buried in Jodi Picoult's "Plain Truth", which is cutting into my Olympic time. :)

Oooh, I've read that one. Let me know what you think when you finish it. I wish I were reading a Picoult right now! You should read The Help, too. I'm loving it.
