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.
