This year's Isle of Wight Literary Festival will be celebrating the
2012 London Olympics with a number of exciting sporting fixtures
held exclusively for those involved in the arts. Along with the field 
and track events the organisers are hoping to include a selection of less 
familiar disciplines.  Here for example book reviewers from the Times
 Literary Supplement Formation Weightlifting Team pose for pictures.


  1. How many books can they lift at any one time?

  2. The lads recently won the Barbara Cartland Trophy with a synchronised Jerk & Lift of her complete works - that's every title the old girl wrote - 883 books.
