message 1: by Daniel (new)

Daniel Haven't read any of them. In fact, only heard of a few of them.


message 2: by Sophiene (new)

Sophiene I only know the Stephenie Meyer book and haven't heard of nor read any of the others, so I can't in right conscious vote for any of them.


message 3: by Lesa (new)

Lesa Trapp Shame we are pushing main stream authors when there are so many independent. When you do one for independent authors let me know.

I will hold my vote.


message 4: by Lisa (new)

Lisa I was hoping to see some small press/indie titles here. Most of the books listed I have not read.


Mary (BookHounds) You can choose books to vote on from your own library. The menu is on the right side. I agree I have not read a lot of the books on the list, but I think the list is generated by votes.


message 6: by Shane (new)

Shane Moore Ha! I am a small press title. I will have been a pro for one year January 14th of this year. (I was a police detective for twelve.)

My publisher; Wandering Sage-has just over forty authors. A mid range house has authors in the hundreds.

Author Shane Moore "The Plea of Apollisian." currently ranked number 4.


message 7: by Jodie (new)

Jodie I was only able to vote for one book on here as I never read any of the others. I have a few of the others in my possession, but I haven't read them yet.


message 8: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Voted for Shane Moore :-) but I was wondering were Robert Fanney's book "Luthiels Song" was...

Shane Moore Sarah wrote: "Voted for Shane Moore :-) but I was wondering were Robert Fanney's book "Luthiels Song" was..."

oooo I think you can add more than one book! You should surely add his! Rob is the man!

(Great book btw)

Well, Daniel-get to reading! LOL I tease about Stephenie kicking my butt, but I know several of the authors in the top list. All are talented and great reads for their genre.
(But you should still vote for me...vote for change! LOL)

~Shane


message 13: by Jackie (new)

Jackie I haven't read any of them to be able to vote onthem.


message 14: by Dakota (new)

Dakota I voted for Shane Moore and many others. I also voted for Robert Fanney's book! Both are amazing writers!!!!


message 15: by Linda (new)

Linda Sorry I won't be voting right now only because I haven't read either of these books that are listed. Some of them are in my TBR pile though and I will be reading them this year.

Hugssss
LindaH

message 18: by Glenda (new)

Glenda Bixler Woe is me...I haven't read any of these books! But, on the other hand, I have lots of great ones on my list for 2008!

Sooooo many great books, soooooooooo little time...

Glenda


message 19: by Kim (new)

Kim Sarah's Journey is a sweet story. I HAD to vote for that one!


message 20: by Anna Kathryn (new)

Anna Kathryn Lanier Great story!


message 21: by Richard (new)

Richard If "And the Hippoes Were Boiled in Their Tanks" (published November 2008) by Jack Kerouc and William Burroughs I would have voted for it, otherwise I haven't read any of the books on the list.

Will there be a non-fiction list?


message 22: by C.j. (new)

C.j. Fugue Macabre: Ghost Dance by C. J. Parker is on the list twice. The problem is the one currently at #33 was published in 2007, and is costing votes for the correct book now at #6.


message 23: by LaTATOOIE (new)

LaTATOOIE - You guys who are into mature humor will not be disappointed by reading HANDLE TiME by LiNCOLN PARK. I was pleasantly surpriesd!


message 24: by Shane (new)

Shane Moore Biy, this whole poll is seven kinds of jacked up! LOL Why are books with one vote listed as number one?

~Shane


message 25: by C.j. (new)

C.j. Yeah, Shane, someone needs to fix this. It's a mess.


back to top



Anyone can add books to this list.
