3.27 {Whatever Wednesday} NCAA Book Brackets

Whatever Wednesday — a chance to post something I’ve seen that I’m diggin’. Though often a cool quote or poster, it might simply be a picture.

Enjoy!… and consider posting your own Whatever.

Your votes are in. Mr. Peterson and I have tallied up the results and found YOUR favorite books and series of the year. Remember, you each voted on two favorite books and one favorite series.

Here is a pic of me trying to get them all organized over the weekend…

And here is your 2013 NCAA BookBracket!

We ranked each book by how many votes it received from AlphaTeam and Team Possible. The number of votes decided the book’s/series’ seed (or ranking). We assigned each book/series to a comparably seeded team in the NCAA Sweet 16.

So: If a team wins, the book it represents will move on. EXAMPLE: At 7:15 on Thursday, March 28, #3 Marquette will play #2 Miami. Bookwise, this means that A Monster Calls is playing Wonder. If Marquette wins, A Monster Calls will move on in the bracket to play the winner of Indiana (The One and Only Ivan) and Syracuse (Bud, Not Buddy). If Miami wins, Wonder moves on.

And so it will go until we make it to the championship book game on Monday, April 8th.

Check back on Tuesday for an updated BookBracket after all the weekend’s action.

Enjoy the tournament–and may the best book win!

  3. I hope A Long Walk to Water wins the single book bracket. When are we going to read it next? (Even though I finished it)

    • It’s awesome that you finished it. What a great book. We will continue it on Tuesday, most likely.

      But I have some bad news for you, Spiderman (that’s you, Ben)… Check the next post for updated brackets.
