Book Madness Update: Vote now to determine our Elite Eight

by on March 26th, 2015

We have our Sweet Sixteen, though the sweet aspect might be pushed aside as people vote to keep their favorite title and/or character in the running. It’s getting harder to choose. Percy Jackson vs. Laura Ingalls Wilder? Gone With the Wind vs. The Grapes of Wrath? The Giver vs. Charlotte’s Web? BookMadness

“It’s too hard to choose,” one patron tweeted.

We agree, but it must be done. Voting in this round continues through the end of the day Friday. We will reveal our Elite Eight Saturday morning.
