Rules of the Challenge

  • Check out a book from the third floor, then ask a staff member for a ballot (limit one ballot per day).
  • Use your ballot to vote for your favorite book in each bracket.
  • Winning books will advance weekly to the next round.
  • Losing books will be entered into a drawing and awarded to someone who voted for them.
  • Ballots are good for one week only. Voting restarts weekly with an empty ballot box.
  • At the end of the month, the winner of the Kindle Fire and the winning book will be chosen from among those who voted for the winning book.
  • You don’t have to vote for all brackets, but doing so will increase your chances of winning.
