On the TV every night, and almost all day on the weekends. Those who like particular sports are complaining at having to watch all the others, but, I enjoy the lot.
There can be no doubt though that it has had an impact on my reading.
As most of the blogs I read are related to crime fiction, only a few have references to the Olympics.
Here are a couple to check out:
- Criminal Brief: The Whys of the Prize talks about the equivalents of gold medals in writing.
- In Reference to Murder: Crime Fiction of Olympic Proportions lists some crime fiction books to look for.
AN OLYMPIC DEATH by Manuel Vazquez Montalban.
The Barcelona detective Pepe Carvalho has been hired by a beautiful French woman and a mysterious man involved in the planning of the 1992 Olympic Games. Into his life comes danger and puzzling clues in the form of murdered Greeks, Arab criminals and a sadistic, anonymous killer.
Something else I ran across that I haven't seen on the news here:
Two weeks ago in Beijing two family members of the U.S. Olympic volleyball coach were stabbed, one fatally.
