Though this is not officially a blog, we're big fans of the new contest put on this year by The Morning News. Each day, two books go head to head and a literary critic of some sort decides which book is best. That book then goes on to battle other books.
The battle can be found here.
Quick vote: We love the idea of a book tournament. Excellent.
Edit: The winner of this year's The Morning News' Tournament of Books is The Brief Wonderous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz. Check it out, we're going to.
