Wild Card Categories

Every year in our competition against other libraries across Missouri, extra points are awarded for certain books and bloggers. In the 2019-2020 blogging year, the wild card categories are:
  • Books with either a ? or ! in the title — This is pretty straightforward: is the title an exclamation, complete with an exclamation point? Is it a question, complete with a question mark? Then it counts. If the answer to either of those questions is no, then nope, it doesn't.
  • Books in which the author's last name includes a double letter — We're looking for two of the same letter in a row, like Clooney or Pitt (but authors, not actors). But remember, only the last name counts, so, to continue with the Ocean's 11 theme, Matt Damon doesn't count.
  • Bloggers whose first name OR last name is longer than 7 letters — This is an either/or situation, so you can't combine first and last.
