Matthew Winner I haven't actually voted yet (as of Saturday, February 14th), but when I added the titles to create the list it counted them as a vote. Weird, right!? In any case, if I can't reorder my choices online before our meeting I'll just log in as Aimee (my wife) to cast my votes.

NOTE: The titles above are listed in alphabetical order by author's last name (at the time of posting) plus our final three titles were added to the list.

Have fun!

Daria Thanks for putting this together Matt! Just this week I was asking Jen about how she felt about the books we'll be voting on next month. I'm eager for our final discussion!

Pat I'll be checking back to see how Found, Paint the Wind, and Someone named Eva are doing on your list since they are also on the 6-9 Yes list and we have been asked to try and avoid duplication....Pat Valas 6-9 group

Sounds great, Pat! I'm also looking forward to seeing how the 6-9 list pans out. Your group a quite a handful more books than us, so I wonder if they'll end up making the group's top 10 list wen it's all said and done.

Pat Matthew - how is the "score" listed for each book determined? I noticed that some people are ranking out of 10 and some out of 23...so what does the score tell us???
PatV (6-9)
I may have to get this started for our group as well.

If you look at the list under my account name (I created it) you'll see all 23 books with numbers of considered rank on the left-hand side. If you view the list under someone else's name (like Daria) you'll only see the books that she ranked.

"Igraine the Brave" is currently ranked number 1 through my list because Daria, Tiffany, and I have voted it high enough (number 8 on my list, 2 on Daria's, and currently 1 on Tiffany's). If more people vote and if people change their rankings, the book ranking will change, too.

The list will be more accurate as more and more people rank their books/vote.


message 7: by Daria (new)

Daria I didn't put them in any special order - that was too hard. I guess I need to rank them!


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Is anyone free to vote on this one, or is it for a particular club?
