Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.

As I get ready to pack for my trip home, I celebrate the fact that a) I am ready to go home, sleep in my own bed, and cuddle my dogs and b) it is Thursday, which means I only have one more day at work before I get to celebrate the weekend again.  Oh, and it is time for this week’s 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!

I do not think the Winter Olympics has impacted my reading time so much as other things occurring in my life this week – certification exam, this business trip.  I honestly wish I could watch more of it – and really, by watching more I mean that I have it on in the background while reading to look up when it is an event that I like to watch. 

I have not read any Olympics-themed books, and I am not certain that is something in which I would ever be interested.  I like the anonymity of each athlete, cheering them all on during the fruition of years and years of hard work and sacrifice that most of us will only ever imagine.  To me, it is not about one athlete or one team but about all of them, coming together to show off that hard work and dedication and the artistry of their sport.  I love the Olympics, what they are supposed to symbolize and how they show the best of humanity – typically. 

What do you think?  Are there any Olympic-themed books I should consider reading?
