Yeah. The Worm has Olympic fever and it has infected the decision making process, surely. Our next genre list? Sports, of course! I know there is a LOT out there to chose from, and most of it is of the celebrity bio type. I have worked hard (hard work being relative in this Olympic season) to put together a diverse list to give every reader and sports fan a bite of something tasty. If you have any suggestions of your own, please comment or send me an email at email@example.com And remember, if you’re going to buy a recommended book – do it through the bookworm links so we get a piece from Amazon!
