This Week in the Writing World...March 11

by Brooke Favero
My new favorite thing: The Morning News' Tournament of Books. It's a March Madness for book lovers. They picked 16 notable books from 2010 and created a bracket to determine which book will win the title of The Best Book of 2010. I'm rooting for Room, My Super Sad True Love Story and The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake.

Did one of your favorite books from last year make the cut? What book do you think will win?
