I must say that I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book. --Groucho Marx

T.G.I.F (42)

TGIF is a fun little feature hosted by Ginger @ GReads! Every week we re-cap what has happened on the blog plus Ginger asks a question for us to answer. This week’ question is: Book Olympics: In the spirit of the Olympics, which books would you give the gold, silver, and bronze medals to? It can be any genres new or old.

As always Ginger asked a very good question.
Love this question.

Okay here is how I set up my Olympic team of books. Just like Gymnastics, you have the team finals (series) and all-round individuals. And they grouped by Adult and Young Adult & New Adult.
First Up Team Finals all ended in ties.
