Not quite Olympic literary gold " Last week we mentioned that literature used to be an Olympic event until 1948... See the full list of winners here -- though you figure if they were trying to really be Olympic they would have at least awarded medals, not just cash."

I can see future events: the Complete OED lift, synchronized reading, and the ever-popular team penmanship competition.

And for those who need more physical endeavors, we could have speedshelving and the ever popular book-cart races.
