Welcome to another exciting edition of Tightwad Tuesday. Being that everyone … well, almost everyone, OK, some people have Olympic fever I figured I'll have my cheap butt go out and found some fun and affordable books on the subject.
I remember as a child that the Olympics were a really big deal. I lost interest as an adult and it seems that so did many other people. I can't blame them due to NBC's lackluster coverage (lots of hype, little content which is delayed by half a day). I think that it's too bad, the Olympics are a wonderful event and full of spirit.
Hope you enjoy.
