Enter OverDrive’s Library eBook Tournament

Michael Lovett Mar 7, 2013 6:22 AM - Show original item


March Madness is upon us, and regardless of whether you follow the NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Championship, here’s your chance to experience the thrill of bracketology. This month, we’re hosting the first-ever OverDrive Library eBook Tournament.

Like the Final Four, the eBook tourney will follow a single-elimination model, starting with a large, regional field of competitors and culminating in a championship match-up. In this case, the competitors are library eBooks and audiobooks. We’ve selected the entrants based on the most popular eBooks and audiobooks by region, based on OverDrive digital library statistics.  Now it’s up to you to decide which titles advance to the next round! Simply vote for your favorite regional title using our Survey Monkey page. After each week-long round, we’ll tally the votes to determine which titles advance to the next round.

Here’s the best part: we’ll award a Google Nexus 7 tablet to the library that fields the most participants!
