Dear reader, life is too short for crap books.

Something for the Indoor Kids

Nominees for The Morning News's Tournament of Books have been announced!

Last year, I followed this March Madness-inspired battle of the books like I was losing money on it. Anansi Boys eliminated in the first round! Somebody knocks Veronica down a peg! Jonathan Safran Foer and Nicole Krauss face off! Home Land almost wins it all!

Peaks and valleys, folks, and a thrill a minute.

Judging won't start for a few weeks, but polling for the zombie round has already begun. Brian K. Vaughan's Pride of Baghdad made the Sweet Sixteen, so vote early, and vote often.

Hadn't heard of 5 books on the list, but am looking forward to reading this one.

Predictions and odds to follow.
