Best Book EVER Tournament 2006, Round 4, Group A/B

Here is the first group for Round Four. I combined Groups A and B into this one post so I didn't post four entries with only two matchups. The four survivors of Group A in Round Three are still in their same section, and likewise the winners of Groups B, C, and D, I just did the combining to save some time. Voting will end on Sunday, September 24th, at 12:00 PM, EST.

You and I made reverse Shakespeare decisions. Arrr.

Arrrrg, matey, so it goes that way.

From the beginning, I predicted that LOTR would dominate this competition. Considering they made 3 crappy movies about it, instead of just one like all the other books.

It was a common prediction. I can't say it's a bad book since I've never read it, and I didn't think the movies were all that bad, so if it does win, I won't be hurt.

Personally I'm still theoretically "reading" the Lord of the Rings, though considering I started before the first movie came out I don't think I'll be finishing.

I'm protesting "Hamlet." This is starting to be painful.

Sorry.

Is it painful like the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune?
