Even though I got this one wrong, there was no real surprise in the outcome of this match.  I think it would have been some kind of poetic justice if 2666 and Shadow Country were slated to face off in Round 3, but maybe that would just be cruel and unusual punishment for the judge!  See how it all went down, here. I have to admit that I'm nervous that A Mercy is waiting for me at the local library, and I'm also next in line for Shadow Country AND Netherland, both of which should be returned and set aside for me this week.  When am I going to find the time to read all of these books (Shadow Country alone is probably going to be a mad dash as it is, what with its 800 pages, or whatever obscene amount it is)? Next Up:  A Mercy goes up against My Revolutions.  I'm calling it in favor of A Mercy, but your guess is as good as mine.  It would be nice if at least one female-penned author made it to the semi-finals, right?  At this point, Toni Morrison is the only chance we ladies have got!
