The ToB Book Bloggers' Office Pool

The 2007 Tournament of Books kicks off at The Morning News on Thursday. Click here to find out which books will be squaring off against which books in what promises to be a fierce and very entertaining competition. And while you’re over there, don’t miss the chance to win copies of the contending books by entering the Book Bloggers’ Office Pool Contest:

Here’s how the contest works. In addition to this year’s brackets, below you’ll find a set of brackets filled out by each of our selected Office Pool Book Bloggers. Review them, then select the one you think is the most likely to win—the bloggers will be scored for each match they predict correctly, with scores updated each day of the Tournament. Email us at the address below with the name of the blogger you like in the email subject line, and your full contact information in the body of the email. (You can only enter once.) We’ll randomly select one reader for each blogger to “play for,” and the winning blogger’s reader will win every book in the tournament, courtesy of Powell’s Books. Note: The contest will close at 6 p.m. EST this Wednesday, March 7.

I’m one of the participating bloggers. Throw in your lot with me, and you could win a fine stack of books. Of course, if you think that one of the other bloggers has compiled a more likely looking list of match winners, follow your gut and go with them. The fact that there is very little overlap between our choices suggests that this is going to be a tough one to call…

Already? Fantastic! **happy dance** ... **sudden shame at the realization that I never did get around to reading Sam Lipsyte's Homeland after last year's, though I did enjoy Ali Smith's The Accidental**

Of course, I'm with you! Was there ever any doubt?

Shoot, it appears to be closed! Still, I will be interested in the results.

FYI, Kate, did you see the piece in Bookforum on Paul Auster?
