Inspired by the Olympics, Lisa and Lisa discuss books that remind them of the Olympics. While only one book in this discussion is actually about the actual event, all deal with endurance and perseverance against the odds while providing engrossing reads.
J Lisa C’s picks include John Feinstein’s sports series for young adults and Dead Reckoning: Great Adventure Writing from the Golden Age of Exploration, 1800-1900 by Helen Whybrow.
Lisa LC’s picks are Magic Tree House #16: Hour of the Olympics by Mary Pope Osborne, Winterdance by Gary Paulsen, Grayson by Lynne Cox, and What I Talk About When I Talk About Running by Haruki Murakami.
And be sure to listen to Lisa and Lisa’s new jam “tasting” and the weekly “Book Bind.”
