Book Tournament Update

I have decided to share with all of you a few things about the Coffee For The Brain Book Tournament. As you may or may not know I changed the rules of the book nominations. With so many books being nominated that were not published in the last year I decided to open up all books with the idea that they will not be allowed to enter the tournament next year.

Here is the current list of books nominated. Don't see a great book nominated yet? Go ahead and nominate. We need more books! Hopefully, you will nominate new books. Find your favorite author, find out if they have published any new books and nominate away!! The newer the books the greater the chance nobody has read it and allows me to buy so many great things! These are in no particular order and are not guaranteed to make the actual tournament. This is just the current pool.

1. Compound by S.A. Bodeen
2. The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
3. Gym Candy by Carl Deuker

I also need more judges. Parents get involved. Students get involved. Staff get involved. We need more. If you are a fellow blogger and want to participate please drop me a line. I am in need of a few more quality judges. I have a total of 33 judges at this point in time.

Don't forget to watch the latest movie trailer for the book tournament that I made over the weekend. It is such high quality(sarcasm if you missed it). Enjoy
