March Madness—with books
For the next few weeks, March Madness basketball will be hard to avoid, for better or worse. (I love it, and it's especially fun to see St. Bonaventure back in the mix.)
But even if you actively dislike sports (how do you live?), this is fun: Out of Print, the company that creates fashion based on literary classics like The Great Gatsby, Catch-22, and even kid faves like Harold and the Purple Crayon and Mike Mulligan, has put together a very cool Book Madness bracket on its website.
It includes a wildly diverse mix of titles, from, yes, The Hunger Games, to World War Z, White Teeth, Middlesex, and way beyond.
Voting is happening as we speak; rules are posted here. Game on, Cloud Atlas.
