Book Battle: Round 2 Offical Starting Line!
So, although belated, this is the official starting line for Round 2 of the 2011 YA Bloggers Book Battle! Our 24 finalists from Round 1 have been organized into brackets, and a panel of 22 judges is currently reading their hearts out to try and pick a winner for each bracket. If you'd like to see which books are matched up, you can check out the bracket graphic below (click to make it bigger):
In case you need a little more clarity, here's how the whole thing will work: Each pair of judges has been assigned a numbered bracket. Each bracket has two books assigned for those judges to read. At the end of two weeks, each partnership will pick a winner. One book will move on, one will not. The one that moves on will become part of a bracket in the next round and will have a chance to move on or not depending on what the new judges decide.
While the judges complete Series 1, there won't be a lot of battle action going on. But once winners have been chosen, I'll be periodically posting the winners. So if you're waiting to see what happens, start checking back every few days in about a week.
