"Winston is a Hedgehog who likes to read. He also looks good next to Helvetica Light, which bodes well for his chances.

He is also not a bee, which makes him less polarizing."

"A logo idea for a reading character. Dragons seem the most fantastical and literary of fairy tale creatures. I like the young dragon, because some of my earliest memories are of being read to and it certainly affected my life."

"Hello,
My name is Ephesus 'Effie' Zenodotus.
I was named after the ancient Greek city - Ephesus - where my great ancestor who was noted to be one of the first librarians of the Library of Alexandria - Zenodotus of Ephesus - was from.

The love of books has been passed down from generation to generation. Now as a librarian, I hope to pass my passion for books to other creative minds!"

"I am the first dog to have his memoir nationally published in non-fiction, not bad for a writer in a fur suit. I love to write and blog, which isn't easy with unopposable paws. When I'm not doing that I have a book in these oversized mitts I possess. These qualities are what would make me a great mascot for goodreads. Did I mention I'm extremely good looking? Woof!"

Sashana These are all so good! I can't wait to see which one win.


message 2: by Rhonda Rae (new)

Rhonda Rae Baker I wanted to vote for one of the animals but needed more inspiration with what their thoughts were so went with the icon that spoke to me the loudest...thanks for allowing us to vote Goodreads. I love this site!!!!


message 3: by James (new)

James I couldn't resist the Bee.


message 4: by Madge (new)

Madge I wish I had known about this! I have a great picture of one of my cats sleeping on Red Dragon, with a bunch of other books in the background. Can't wait to see the winner.


message 5: by Tahtipolya (new)

Tahtipolya I voted for the cat with the heart book! :3


message 6: by Lauren (new)

Lauren Go Team Winston!


message 7: by Kevin (new)

Kevin Garcia The animals pictures are all good


message 8: by Dapplenose (last edited Nov 03, 2010 04:12PM) (new)

Dapplenose I like the first cat and book, the cat and heart shaped pages, the dog with glasses, the bee, and the hedgehog.


message 9: by Alisha (new)

Alisha Bumble is a bee I can really stand behind. ^_^


message 10: by Lauren (new)

Lauren I voted for the cute calico kitty!!! I have 2 calico cats one has a yellow stripe right in between her ears like a tiger! MEOW


message 11: by Mandee (new)

Mandee So since this mascot is gonna be incorporated onto a t-shirt, not on the site, we should be voting for something we'd be willing to wear! That kinda changes things a little :)


message 12: by Hannah (new)

Hannah Winston!


Spazzy Maz Brit [the insane one] I can't decide they are all so good :)


message 14: by [deleted user] (new)

lol, i ♥ Octavo! XD


message 15: by Myles (new)

Myles Winston. You can't beat his font coordination.

Same!


message 18: by Diana L. (new)

Diana L. Yep, the bee is really cute!


message 19: by Dottie (new)

Dottie I voted for Markus -- but what I'd like to see if Markus is chosen is Markus on the back of the shirt with the likes - dislikes - loves just as it appears on the Markus entry above. then on the left front of the shirt a smaller Markus atop the goodreads web address or the name in the font as it appears on the home page. It's simple and colorful much like the site itself.


message 20: by Samori705 (new)

Samori705 I like the one that Jessica put up

message 25: by Diana (new)

Diana given some of the...challenged...entries listed here, i'd pay cash money to see the list of entrants Goodreads had to disqualify.


message 26: by Samantha (new)

Samantha The horse holding the cat is clearly the best


message 27: by Laura (new)

Laura I like the bee


A Kid Named Megan☮ coolio;)

that should cover most of them


message 32: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer Lane These were great! I loved the cat peering from behind heart shaped pages, the dog with glasses, and Marcus the bookie, but in the end I had to go with Bumble the Goodreads Bee.


message 33: by Killer Queen (new)

Killer Queen I could go for the bee or the little book that likes walks on the beach.


message 34: by alhafizol (new)

alhafizol Markus!!


message 35: by Catherine (new)

Catherine Man! There are so many good ones, it was hard to pick!!! Great job to everyone who entered!!!


message 36: by Monique (new)

Monique The BookBee is it for me.


message 37: by Ashley Marie (new)

Ashley Marie Holden I just hope the look of the website stays the same because I really like it. It's simple and neutral, easy on the eyes. Actually... skins wouldn't be a bad idea if that became an issue.


message 38: by Luis (new)

Luis definitely the bumble bee. it looks humble but commercial at the same time. :)


message 39: by [deleted user] (new)

OO intellectual cat...genius...I'd wear that on my shirt anyday.


message 40: by pearl (new)

pearl Winston. And not just because I feel a little Redwall nostalgia when I see hedgehogs, but also because I think Winston's classy and natural look really jives with the GR aesthetic. Winston all the way.


message 41: by Tracey (new)

Tracey Alley I voted for Gertie's book with tongue bookmark - thought it was so cute


message 42: by rivka (new)

This will definitely not change that.


message 43: by Bookwatcher (new)

Bookwatcher I can believe that someone vote for mine :-D
Thank you all!

Mine vote is for the cat and the book, Melanie mascot... Amazing... Really a wonderful image!!!!


message 44: by Natalia (new)

Natalia The book inukshuk is awesome, but I had to vote Markus!

Go Markus!


message 45: by Casey (new)

Casey Can't wait to see which one wins. :)


message 47: by Rauf (new)

Rauf I like the cat (or was that a wee baby tiger?) by Megan and the crow with the scarf (or was that a tie?).

But the cat wasn't doing anything bookish. And the crow was not drawn very well. So.....Undecided.


message 48: by Rachel (new)

Rachel Gonna have to go with the bee. Defintely the best!


message 49: by Indraroop (new)

Indraroop ...these mascots are fugly.
Why does goodreads even need one of these half-assed "mascots" - it would just look more camp. The website looks classy enough the way it is at the moment...


message 50: by is mee... kissa (last edited Nov 03, 2010 10:30PM) (new)

is mee... kissa i'm honestly curious... why does everyone like the bee so much?
i love the cat peeking through the turned book pages, it's a gorgeous picture... but as a mascot, i think of something more along the lines of a cartoon image so i chose the book with its tongue lolling out...
go Markus, go Markus, woot, woot, woot, woot!
