Books on Winter Olympics


Have you been watching the 48th Winter Olympics taking place in Sochi, Russia? I think Sochi must have been one of Russia’s best kept secrets. The opening was spectacular. The technical effects were awesome. The artistry of the dancers was amazing. The athletes make each one of their sports look so easy; a lot of their hard work makes it look so effortless. I’m excited about Russia’s new ice skater Julia Lipnitskaia. I think this calls for a book list of Olympic Winter Sports.
