World Cup Book Sweepstake

Today, (and everyday hopefully) I am going to start posting my World Cup Book Sweepstake… I did this because I fancied a change in my TBR pile.

How It Works: Each country is represented by a book on my TBR list. (Some may be re-reads and books are chosen randomly, they relate to nothing in the country) Each time a country gets through, the book will move towards the front of my TBR shelves. If a country is eliminated, it moves to the bottom of the pile. The first book of the series will be put down. However, the whole series will move to wherever it is needed.

ImageHere is my sweepstake sheet where I keep track of everything. Next to the country is the title of the book. A cross through the flag means that the country has been eliminated and a black line round the box means that the country has gotten through to the next round. (Sometimes I may be wrong on eliminations, but just leave a friendly post in the comments! People make mistakes!) For any people that cannot see the photo well enough, here are the countries and their books:
