Book Madness at the UW-Madison Libraries

April 2nd, 2013
Love the NCAA basketball tourney, but wish it was just a little more … bookish? You’re in luck. The UW-Madison Libraries are hosting the first annual Book Madness Tournament.
A brutal selection process resulted in a collection of 64 books – 8 divisions with 8 books each – going head-to-head to determine our favorite book.
Vote for your favorites in each round. Total votes will determine which books move on.
The eight divisions are:
  • Fantasy
  • Horror
  • Sci-Fi
  • Classics
  • Romance
  • Mystery
  • Contemporary Literature
  • Non-Fiction
Follow the contest on Twitter and Facebook to get updates as the tournament progresses and remember to vote in EACH round!
