Over at Amy’s blog I saw this which seems like a very good idea! Essentially it’s celebrating all book bloggers. I’ve certainly enjoyed reading book blogs around the net and I’d also like to thank you all for you’re great work! So, thanks all of you!

Booking Through Thursday

First:

* Do you or have you ever read books about the Olympics? About sports in general?
* Fictional ones? Or non-fiction? Or both?

I guess it depends on how you define them. The only non-fiction books about sports I’ve read have been about horses and horse-back riding. I’ve also read about about ancient Greeks where the Olympics at their time have been described. I’ve also read fiction books where sports play some part. When I was a teenager, I read lots and lots of horse books. I’ve also read Dick Francis books which tend to center around race horses.

Are the Black Stallion books sports books?

And, Second:

* Do you consider yourself a sports fan?
* Because, of course, if you’re a rabid fan and read about sports constantly, there’s a logic there; if you hate sports and never read anything sports-related, that, too … but you don’t have to love sports to enjoy a good sports story.

Not really. I’ve done some horse-back riding when I was a teenager. I follow riding, slalom, and skating from time to time but I’m not rabid about out. I’d also like to watch fencing but unfortunately it’s now shown here. I don’t care about other sports and I don’t watch sports movies.
