HarperCollins March Madness - Round Four

It's Round #4 of HarperCollins March Madness. Eight books remain.

It's hard to believe that Agatha Christie is competing against herself. I haven't read either of the books, but I'm familiar with the stories. I'm having a hard time deciding which one to vote for.

I'm delighted that one of the books I picked out at the beginning is still in the running! It's an amazing book and I really hope it takes the overall title. It has some really stiff competition, though.

The Book of Negroes by Lawrence Hill. If you haven't read this book yet, I highly recommend it.

I'm going to take Gypsysmom's/Wendy's advice later this week and start "The Art of Racing in the Rain" by Garth Stein. I already know a little about it and I'm afraid it's going to be too sad for me right now. I'm a bit stressed out with all of the stuff that going on around here, so I might have to wait until I'm in a better frame of mind. I'm definitely going to try to read it soon.

That's it for this week. Don't forget to vote for your favourites (click here) and enter the contest. All 64 books in the competition could be yours!

Any predictions about who's going to take the overall title?


  1. I soooo want to read this book, ever since I saw a review on Leeswammes her book blog. Hearing more good stories about it, makes we want to read it even more!

  2. Voted again. Wow, they are all so close. Hoping for The book of Negroes but I don't know.

    My son sent me on a shopping trip for a gift for his sister last week. I did have Snookie's book in my hand, but son really wanted me to purchase Mike 'The Situation's' book. So back went Snooki and I brought home Mike.

    Now that you have brought this other book to daughter's attention, so still wants me to buy it for her.


Thanks so much for your comment. I really appreciate it. Unfortunately, I've been getting lots of spam comments, so I'm turning on word verification to help keep spammers away. I know it's a pain; I don't like it either. Hopefully, in time I'll be able to turn it off again. Thank you!
