Let Me Be Your Bracketologist

March 5, 2007 | 4

You recall a couple of weeks ago when I previewed The Morning News 2007 Tournament of Books. As it turns out, they’ve incorporated a contest for readers – an office pool – into this year’s Tournament and I’m involved. How to play along:

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

So, go there and pick The Millions’ bracket, there could be a whole bunch of books in it for you.

created The Millions and is its publisher. He and his family live in New Jersey.


  1. VERY tough choices! All those bloggers are good at what they do. But I picked your bracket. Good luck!

  2. Max! You have Dan Chaon choosing Apex Hides the Hurt over the Monica Ali book, and then having same book go pretty far. There's no way Dan is going to go for that Colson Whitehead book, no matter its opponent.
    (But, the Echo Maker is a good final pick in my opinion).

  3. How could I have forgotten to ask the two Dan Chaon experts I know, I'm so foolish… Still, though, I did hear some good things about the Whitehead book. Who knows, we could see an upset.

    Anyway, I STILL hopw some more folks pick The Millions' bracket… We're going all the way, baby!
