A Book Tournament

There seems to be a tournament for everything else in the US, except college football, so why not a book tournament.

This morning I came across an article about The Morning New’s Tournament of Books. I checked it out and last year’s champion is a book I thought was great, Jennifer Egan’s A Visit From the Goon Squad. Never before have I heard of this tournament, but I like it and I like the great books that have been a part of this competition.

Other notable shortlisted books are Let the Great World Spin, A Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, The Help, 2666, and many other great titles from 2010, 2009, and 2008.

Happy Reading

  1. Thanks for the linkback to Book Riot, though I should be clear that this is only my guess as to what the nominees will be. The shortlist and finalists will be announced by The Morning News shortly after the new year.
