2019 Book March Madness

march madness

Do you love reading challenges? Our March Madness Book challenge is back. Books get paired with college basketball teams and you get to try and predict which basketball teams will win. You get extra points for reading books that advance in the tournament (books advance based on whether their basketball team partner wins or loses their match).

Book brackets have been posted on our challenge page. Sheet 1 is the basketball bracket, sheet 2 is the book bracket, sheet three is the list of books with authors. You will pick your bracket on the CBS sports page by picking basketball teams. Those teams will be matched with books in the order you see them in the bracket – think about placing one bracket on top of the other and you will see how they match up.

Participants have one day to sign up – you must sign up and fill out your bracket before the tournament starts (tomorrow at noon EST).

Full instructions can be found on our challenge page. Click here: March Madness Challenge

Good luck readers!!

  1. I think I’ll watch with interest from afar, I am a bear with such a little brain that I’d be sure to make a hash of following the rules of the tournament

    • The books are in the bracket already. Make sure to fill it out before the games start at noon. In this post, click the bracket link and the books are on sheet 2. You need to fill out the bracket on CBS asap

      I read The Sugar Men in place of Beyond the Shadow of Night. Both are by Ray Kingfisher. My review can be found here.
