March Book Madness {Selection Sunday}

Are you ready for....
March {Book} Madness?!
Watch our hilarious video below to learn what books will be pitted against each other and how you can play along!

We are so excited to do our FIRST annual Selection Sunday of
March {Book} Madness!

Here is how it will work...

First there are four categories of books:

We did our research and found the most popular books of 2014 in these categories and we polled our book club members to throw in some underdog books to mix things up to create our "teams."


Great questions! Every day on our Delicious Reads Instagram account we will pit two books against each other in the match ups for the day. Especially in the beginning of the game their will be several match ups in order to have YOU help us whiddle things down to our final four books. With your help in choosing which of the two books deserves to go on to the next round we will start to see who the front runners are!

RULES: We picked a total of 32 books from the four categories and we will start the game with the first 16 match ups that we'll post on our Instagram account starting on Monday the 16th. TO PLAY YOU MUST FOLLOW US ON INSTAGRAM AND FILL OUT YOUR BRACKET SHEET.
