What is DABWAHA? It is a tournament of books. We pit 64 books against each other, fill out brackets predicting who will win, and vote vote vote.
The nomination slate is ready and seven out of eight books have been listed at the DABWAHA site. Why is one missing? Because it’s time for you to nominate the book you think should be included that isn’t listed right now.
Which book were we insane to leave off? Fire up your browser and head on over to fill out the form to enter your nominations.
A few words of caution: please make sure that the book is published in 2011 – but not late December 2011. Anything published the last week of December 2011 is counted as a 2012 book (we had a mighty discussion about it on our last podcast).
Please make sure that the book you’re nominating is not a reprint of a previously published book, or the paperback release of a 2010 hardcover.
And finally, please make sure to use the PRINT ISBN number (unless it is an ebook only book) so the results will compile correctly.
Selection Sunday is March 11, and that’s when we’ll be announcing the full slate of nominees and their seeds (1-8) including the reader nominated selection for each category. Then, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, March 11, 12 and 13, IT IS BRACKET TIME!
You’ll be able to start selecting your brackets for the tournament then, and the voting will begin on March 14.
This is a lot of dates to keep track of (even for us!) so we have a calendar created that tells you what’s happening when.
You can also view the calendar online.
Everything happens at DABWAHA.com, including prize announcements, round winners and prize awarding.
64 Books. One Winner. Game on!
