But patience is not a virtue I seem to own.

All the active members have voted (except me - LOL!)... but I want to honor the time frame just in case some of the others that haven't yet participated want to take part.

Sorry gang!

Anyway, it gave me time to figure out how to best calculate it! I finally know how to consider rating and amount of votes together... Hey, give a girl a break - I studied lit & art, not math!

Hey, if anyone else has edited theirs, let me know... because I pretty much enter your choices in my database once you vote so if I don't know they won't be changed. Thanks!

Also, Michelle and Jamie - I want to be sure that is the order you want your choices in as both of you simply listed in alphabetical order. Ranking does make a difference! Hopefully you read this before tonight.


message 21: by Sarah (last edited Aug 25, 2016 01:18PM) (new)

Sarah (songgirl7) Sorry to screw you up, Michele! I just realized that I left out Anna Karenina and wanted to rectify that.

whichwaydidshego? (whichwaydidshego) | 1996 comments Mod
No, it's fine! I'm just glad you said something!

I was doing things ahead so that I could do the figuring and put out the results as soon as possible... but I never said, so you'd not have known. I just want to be sure I get it all right!

Cheers!

Sorry, just need this to be at the top so that others will know to vote and hopefully Jamie will see she needs to rank her books! If anybody knows her personally, get in touch with her! It's important as the race is very tight...
