BEST: Airline reading material for the Olympics Thanks to the official Web page for United States gymnastics team, weve gleaned a bit of insight into the pop-culture choices of our competitors. One prime question put to our silver medal-winning womens team was the choice of reading material for the flight to China. No ones going to fault Shawn Johnson, balancing the inspirational ( Lance Armstrongs Its Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life) with the lighthearted (Marian Keyes Anybody Out There?), but Nastia Luikin takes the gold here. She went completely nonsports with the first two books in Stephenie Meyers vampire series Twilight. Its escapist fare, sure, but one of the more culturally relevant options. Any hey, Nastia, in case the Olympics dont leave you with any time to finish the series, check out our handy Twilight primer.
