Tournament of Books '12 Round 2 Picks

First, it's a good thing I don't have any money on this as you can see from my incorrect picks (in red).

Second, I'm crushed that OPEN CITY won yesterday. I finished this book over the weekend and, not to get into it, but I regretted running up the library fines to finish it. I guess this is how all you Duke fans feel?

Third, I made some new picks because I don't learn:

Now who do you think will be the zombies?!?!?!?!?!

I think Sense of Wonder is a definite Zombie candidate but I am really uncertain of what the other zombie will be. Maybe Art of Fielding?

Speaking of, I am devastated that Art of Fielding lost. It was the first round where I thought the judge was just absolutely without a leg to stand on in that decision.

I'm not convinced that Villalon will favor Tiger's Wife over 1Q84. And I'm not the least bit surprised that a non-violent offender serving a prison sentence chose Lighting Rods over Sense of an Ending. I think you are right about the other two brackets in the quarter finals, though.
