March Madness 2021: Battle of the Books

Welcome to the first year of March Madness: Battle of the Books! We have selected the top 16 circulating items from 2020 in the library's Bestsellers collection and put them up in head-to-head matchups. Let us know which books you think are better in each matchup. Feel free to judge a book by its cover!

Matchups will last one week, and the winning titles will progress to the next rounds. By the end of the month, there'll only be one book left standing!


The winner is in: "Where the Crawdads Sing" by Delia Owens was the BC Community's favorite read of 2020!
