Today we are beginning our MARCH MADNESS fun! Perfect timing since today is Dr. Seuss’ birthday and Read Across America Day. Our March Madness contest is involving Youth/Young Adult Fiction. We are pitting 8 “Classics” against 8 popular “Modern” books. The first round has 8 “classics” to narrow down to 4 as well as 8 “modern” reads to narrow down to 4. We will allow 2 weeks to complete this phase. It is very possible (and likely) that you have read some of these already and can vote! Stop in to see what books are pitted against each other! The bracket will be available soon.
