Jacket covers from Chris Cleave's Today's 2012 Olympic Games opening ceremony begins two-plus weeks of Olympics excitement as most of us tune-in to the spectacle and drama via internet and TV.  After August 12th's closing ceremony, it'll be four years to wait before the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, so if you really want to immerse yourself, check out one of these books or DVDs whose subject is the Olympic Games.  Gold by Chris Cleave (author of Little Bee) is perfectly timed and themed for the games in London; in it, cyclists Zoe and Kate are long-time friends and now, athletic rivals for Olympic gold, where each wants desperately to win and each has more than a medal to lose.
