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.)
I’m reading more during the Olympic break, but it’s not so much fewer TV choices (we still have “Lost,” and “24”) and having time off to recover from a minor surgery.
Ironically enough, I just finished a YA book called “Swim the Fly” which is about a teenage guy who volunteers to swim the butterfly for his swim team to impress a girl. Not a Winter Games sport, but a Summer Games one.
I will add I did watch some women’s curling yesterday while recovering. For some reason I find it fascinating…
