Brackets Complete!

Whew! It's been a loooong week, but after several days of intense organization (really, you should see the papers I have scattered around I had to use for this) the book brackets are complete! Check them out below (you can click to make it bigger):


And we're now ready to battle. The offical reading kick off is tomorrow, Sunday April 25th. That's when our lovely Round 1 judges will be working through the first set of brackets. So things will continue to be a little more quiet around here as they work on that. And then as soon as they're done, we'll be annoucing which books moved on and which ones well... didn't.

Now, hopefully I'll have some time to get my butt in gear and write some reviews in the next two weeks...

My 16 year old just had some minor oral surgery yesterday. What better way to recuperate than to hang out and read all weekend. I ran by the bookstore and purchased The Iron King and Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side. Thanks for the brackets...that ought to get her going. jfs

You've done a great job on this! The challenge looks like a lot of fun! I can't wait to read all the reviews!

It's funny how some time last year one book publisher (I can't remember which one) made a comment on how bloggers really didn't have an impact on book sales. But a challenge like this proves that bloggers are important. There is so much excitement generated for these books by a challenge like this you should probably get an award!

I'm glad I made my way over here from Michelle & Leslie's book blog!
