Welcome to my Booklympics & Giveaway

Well you may remember my Paris Weekend, my Cornish Week or my Greek week (amongst others), but this time I have an event that is bigger and better and hopefully that everyone will enjoy. 

Presenting my Booklympics! 



I am a huge fan of the Olympics which starts properly tomorrow evening, although the opening matches of the football have already started in a rather low key way. I love watching the opening and closing ceremonies, and will for the next 16 days attempting to watch as much of the Olympics as I can...while still functioning and going to work etc.. 

Due to my love of all things sport I have put together and extravaganza for you all, I have many authors coming over to the blog talking about their experiences with sports, loads of giveaways and a whole bunch of reviews. 

The books I have chosen to review all have a link somewhere to sport, not necessarily Olympic sports, and not necessarily a big link may just be a mention of something sporty in the blurb, although some are a bit more obvious than others. 

I will of course be supporting Team GB, and really hope we do well. I was going to use this post to explain my love of the Olympics, but Aven Ellis' post tomorrow does just that, so I will leave it to her to share her love of the Olympics which mirrors my thoughts precisely. 

For a full list of what is going on over the next couple of weeks, please check out my Booklympics page from the top navigation links, as it will have an updated schedule of events on it, and I'll make the links live each day, when I get a chance. 

So without further ado...welcome to my Booklympics, I really hope you enjoy and please do enter my giveaway below! 

Giveaway - Win a random book (open to Europe Only)

To celebrate the start of the Olympics, and being a Team GB eternal optimist, I am going to give away 1 book per 5 medals (of any colour) that Team GB win! With a predicted medal count of between 49 and 79 medals that could potentially be 10-16 books up for grabs from my shelf of giveaway prizes! 

The final number of prizes will be locked in, after the closing ceremony, when the final medal table is known. I will round to the nearest 5. Books will be sent out at random, and they are a a real mixed bag as to what is potentially available. 

Giveaway open to Europe Only, all options are voluntary, but please do what they ask, as I will be verifying the winner. Giveaway closes 23:59 23/8/2016. Winner will be announced on twitter and emailed, and they will need to reply within 7 days, or forfeit the prize, and I will re-draw for a new winner.  Good luck everyone.

Win a random book (open to Europe Only)

  1. Who am I supporting? That's easy. Alan Sinclair who is rowing in the heavy weight men's coxless pair's. I work with his mum so everyone is so proud and excited for him and the family. I would be watching the rowing anyway along with the swimming, tennis and cycling. Lx

  25. I was so happy when Nick Skelton won the show-jumping gold. He's an amazing rider and came back from a career-ending (and life-threatening) injury. Amazing man, have been a fan of his since the 80's and always wanted a brown hat as he used to wear one. I remember meeting him (we went for a new hat for myself and funnily enough he was there at the time - that fact was well-hidden from me, by my parents until they showed me why we had gone that day) and met him a few years later and he actually said "I've met you before" - unless he says that to everyone, I was so happy. :)

  27. I really enjoyed watching the Olympics. I was particularly rooting for Max Whitlock as I thought he looked promising in 2012 but reporting was focused around others. I'm so pleased for him and the rest of #TeamGB!
