Booking Through Thursday...

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!

Nope. The Olympics doesn't effect my reading. No current events effect my reading as a rule, unless you count maybe reading a book before the movie comes out. I've read maybe two olympic theme books: My Sergei by Ekaterina Gordieva and Michelle Kwans autobiography. I also guess maybe the young adult series Silver Blades kind of counts because it's about figure skaters and one of them goes on to the Olympics but other then that? Not much.
From those books, you can probably see that my favorite sport in the winter olympics is figure skating. I've been watching that mainly, along with some snowboarding and speedskating but not much else. Then of course I watch the opening and closing ceremonys (how awesome was that opening ceremony?). The Olympics are fun and I like the spirit of it. Other then that, I don't really have a for or against opinion of the games.
