Fuse #8

Fight! Fight! Fight!

This is a little confusing, but I think I've gotten the gist of it.

There is currently a book blogger office pool going on. In conjunction with the March 8th Tournament of Books sponsored by Powell's Books, a contest has begun that allows one lucky reader the chance to, "win every book jousting in the tournament."

"How so?," says you.

Simple. The Book Blogger Office Pool. A group of book bloggers looked at a list of books nominated for the Tournament, decided which ones people would love the most, and filled in the standard "brackets" to guess the final winner.

Where do you come in? Well, as the Powell's blog described it, ". . . you pick a blogger, email TMN with his/her name, and they'll randomly select one reader for each blogger — and the winning blogger's reader wins a copy of every single book in the tournament."

Cool, huh? The list of bloggers is here. More info:
To enter the 2007 ToB Book Bloggers’ Office Pool Contest, please select one of the book bloggers listed (Kate’s Book Blog, Book Nerd, The Millions, Condalmo, Brockman/Powells.com, or Shaken & Stirred), type it into an email’s subject line, put your full contact info into the email’s body, and then send it to talk@themorningnews.org by 6 p.m. EST, Wednesday, March 7, 2007; only one entry per person. We will then randomly select an entrant to be assigned to each of the office pool bloggers; the winning blogger’s entrant will receive all of this year’s tournament books after the end of the ToB, courtesy of Powells.com. Good luck!
And hey. I don't want to tell you how to vote. Maybe you're a fan of The Millions or something (too much information for me), but insofar as I can tell, Shaken & Stirred, is the closest thing we have to a kidlit representative. I say you lob her some support. Go, Gwenda Bond, Go!! WOO!
