Compared to this very ancient sports event, e books are something which have been invented to suit our modern existence and our fast lives. So where and how do they come together? Olympics and e books, what could possibly be the connection? It turns out there is. And a sensible one at that. In London of course, where the Olympics are taking place this summery summer.
