The Rooster Crows

It's that time of year again.  The Morning News has announced its line-up of books for this year's tournament.  I've read some of these - Gone Girl, Arcadia, The Round House, and The Orphan Master's Son and look forward to reading the others.  It's a great list.  

The Tournament of Books begins in March, so get reading!  Visit The Morning News website for more information and updates.  They have the list of judges and the long list of books that were considered if this list is too short for you.

Here are the titles that made it into the tournament.  Look for a table display coming soon to Flyleaf.
