Slayermel | 46 comments I know what you mean Petra, I'm sitting here hoping that Angel or Rebecca will win ;op
I've already read Outlander, Alice & Princess Bride and even though I have not read a Christmas Carol yet, it's not on my priority list *giggle*
Crossing my fingers, toes, legs, arms *ahhhh*

message 152: by Petra (new)

Petra You'll enjoy Rebecca. I read it just last month but I'll keep my fingers crossed that it wins for you. I also read A Christmas Carol...which now makes this vote really interesting for me.

Rooting for NOT rebecca or Outlander sorry : (

Lyn (Readinghearts) (lsmeadows) I agree, Rebecca is really good. I loved Outlander, but it is SO LONG. I really hope it doesn't win. At least we don't have to read all three!!

Cait Poytress (caitertot) | 660 comments Ahhhhh, it's tied! Come on Rebecca! :o)

Usako (bbmeltdown) | 1341 comments Whee Rebecca cause uuuh...I think I received it from a swap. REMINDS me to swap out some of my books when I finish reading. MEEP!

For the winter task, I don't mind so much. I'm going to read Stupidest Angel anyhow for another club. And I've been meaning to read Xmas Carol.

If I was truly nutty and IGNORED my TBR, I'd make my Winter Challenge books all based around the holiday season :P

I think she may have been referring to like changing your vote or something... but, yeah, it would be totally crazy if you could just sit there and vote over and over again. Some people could put on an audiobook and just have at it!

Sara ♥ (saranicole) | 1136 comments Yeah, I don't really care about cat 3, so I've been changing my vote periodically, just to have fun with y'all... ;) Anyone want to buy my vote? *muahahahaha* (KIDDING)

message 161: by Petra (new)

Jan (the Gryphon) (yogryphongmailcom) | 228 comments Somebody needs to get ahold of those people voting for Christmas Carol in the first category to change their votes in Classic to one of the front-runners.

message 164: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer (Booktrovert) Good point should just be in the 3rd poll, no??

message 165: by Sara (new)

Sara (MonkeyGirlsMama) Uh oh! What are we doing about a tie??? Poll #1 is tied and poll #3 is only one point difference...this is nerve racking!

message 166: by Elizabeth (NC) (new)

Elizabeth (NC) | 185 comments When do the polls officially close?

message 167: by Angela (new)

Angela | 370 comments They are closed and we have two ties: Rebecca and Alice and Charles Dickens and Stupidest Angel.
Princess Bride won.

message 168: by Slayermel (new)

Slayermel | 46 comments hmmmm....2 ties what happens now?
I find this all very interesting

message 169: by Slayermel (new)

Slayermel | 46 comments The other thing I find very interesting is the number of voters for each Cat differs

Cat 1 = 199 votes
Cat 2 = 200 votes
Cat 3 = 198 votes

I guess my question would be to voters, why do you think that is?
Could it be that one category is not as appealing as the others, or none of the books appealed to the voter?
Like I said, I find the whole thing very fascinating :0)
Would love to hear your insight or opinions on this

message 170: by Sara (new)

Sara (MonkeyGirlsMama) I wondered the same Slayermel! Now, what do we do about the ties??

message 171: by Cynthia (new)

Cynthia (PandoraPhoebesMom) | 1378 comments I'm creating run-off polls for those two categories - people will have between now and Saturday to vote. Hopefully that will break the ties.

message 172: by Sara (new)

Sara (MonkeyGirlsMama) Yeah! Thanks Cynthia!

I don't know about the previous polls, but I will tell you for the run off polls, I only voted in the Christmas category. I've already read both Rebecca and Alice, and don't plan on reading either again, so I'm keeping myself out of it. I love trying to figure out why people do different things too, so hope that helps!
