ToB Contest: THAT'S ALL FOLKS!

It's the Tournament of Books Contest!
THAT'S ALL FOLKS! Edition


Before I get to the results I just want to say THANK YOU to the 50 people that participated in this contest.  It was so much fun for me to tally the results and update the standings each morning.  I loved the discussions on Goodreads and in the comments section on the Tournament's site and I enjoyed getting to know some of you.  I have new book friends!

So let's get on with it.  The winner of the Tournament of Books is...

 THE SISTERS BROTHERS
Awesome McAwesomeness
Kermit Approves!

Which brings us to the winner of the Forever Overhead Tournament of Books Contest.  You guys, this was a tight race.  Just take a look at the standings.  But in the end, Megan Granger won by a hair, unseating the reigning champion Laura Spaulding.

brilliant!

Meg is generally hilarious and has a great book blog called The Terrible Desire.  You should also follow her on Twitter because she is awesome.  Meg wins any book from this year's Tournament or any previous winner of the Tournament of Books.  Congratulations!!

And one more note about our final results - if Open City had taken the Rooster, Brad McGinty (a man with a fine mustache, indeed) would have CRUSHED the competition.  I actually felt bad for Brad when I read the results this morning.

Thanks again everybody, I hope we can do this again next year!


For the last time, Powells.com is a sponsor of the Tournament of Books and you would be doing them (and me) a big favor if you used this link to buy any of the books in this year's tournament.  All ToB books are 30% off their list price and you'll be supporting a great bookseller!
