brackets graphic for the battle may have noticed a mysterious spot in Round 4. And while returning battle spectators from last year may know what this means, those of you who are new might not.
To keep brackets evenly matched, we need another competitor to add to Round 4. So we "resurrect" one of the previously eliminated titles and give it one last second chance at the coveted spot in Series 5. Last year a team of judges helped narrow down which books were eligible for the spot. There was a lot of thought and feedback from last year (both judges and spectators) that went into the planning for this year. And I've decided to do things a little differently.
To be truly fair to those books that maybe didn't get a chance because they were matched up with the wrong book, I've decided to narrow the field of competitors to only books eliminated in Series 1 and Series 2. This also makes it easier on our Round 4 judges in the affected bracket, since they don't have to wait for a decision at the end of Round 3 to get their assignment.
