The results are in for the Elite 8! And much like the Texas vs. UNI or Wisconsin vs. Xavier games, there were some "nail-biters" in Literary March Madness. It's madness all around! Now, it's time to cast your vote for the FINAL FOUR. Once you submit your vote, you will be entered into a drawing for prizes! Tell your friends to vote as well. You can vote even if you haven't read the book. VOTE BY FRIDAY, MARCH 25th for the Final Four! Vote again Monday, March 27-31st for the Playoffs using the QR code or the bit.ly link below.
