#Superbookbowl for the Win

Shelf-Awareness is a newsletter/website that I love, it's all about books and the book industry. On Monday, after the Super Bowl, the following article was in the news letter. I loved it and just had to share it with those few people who read this blog.

There was another game going on last evening, too. It was the #Superbookbowl on Twitter, started by @MissLiberty, who kicked off with, "Garcia Marquez just sacked Vargas Llosa!" Others immediately chimed in. Some highlights of the game:

@peterdamien Harper Lee had that brilliant pass in the first quarter, but has remained on the bench for the rest of the game so far.

@AdamBertocci: As a New Yorker, I _should_ support my home team, but I scanned and found a cheaper team on Amazon.

@MissLiberty Man, George R. R. Martin takes a really long time before he throws the ball.

@allshiny Looks like Kafka just gave up. He's lying on his back waving his legs in the air...

@CrownPublishing: Flag on the field--Stieg Larsson called for unnecessary roughness

@EmperorFranzen @jenniferweiner and @jodipicoult are complaining about the coverage NBC is giving the male players. #yawn

@writer_not Orwell asserts that all quarterbacks are equal, but some are more equal than others.

@MissLiberty The Authors call a time out--Houellebecq is missing. Wait, hold on--they have located him. He was at the beer cart.

@EvilWylie "This game is extremely loud and incredibly close." --commentator Jonathan Safran Foer
