I can't believe how intrigued I am with this Battle of the Books thing. In a million years, why should I read about one book vs another when I often haven't even read both books?
Because the judges are so hilarious and so bright and so very articulate, that's why.
Okay for Now vs. Wonderstruck?

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
