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.
