With five out of eight first round matches complete, Lizzy, Chris, and Christy maintain a tentative one point lead in the Contest having all managed four out of a possible five. However, these last three matches will shake things up. Tomorrow and Wednesday’s matches have the entire field split, while one of our leaders (Christy) has gone the less-traveled route with Atwood.
It is mathematically impossible for the same three-way tie for first to last the week.
In actual TOB news, Wolf Hall has managed the expected. Even with a quick exit, I think Logicomix was a winner. I haven’t read it yet, but it sounds like a perfect introduction to graphic novels for me. I have not finished Wolf Hall, but it and Mantel deserve their reputations.
