5.6. Other People Liked It, Why Not Me?
Read a book that was nominated for the 2011 GR Choice Awards, in any category. Normal rules apply, such as page limits.

NOTE: Now that the voting is over, the complete list of the 20 nominees in each category is again available. Go to http://www.goodreads.com/award/choice... and you'll see all the winners. If you click on a category in the list on the left, that will bring up all 20 nominees in the category.


DLMRose put together a wonderful google.docs spreadsheet, listing the nominees before they got winnowed down. Goodreads Choice Nominees

REQUIRED: Indicate the category in which your book was nominated.

Debra (debra_t) The link in msg 5 works, but the one in msg 1 doesn't work any longer. PLUS, the book I selected from the Horror category is no longer listed as a nominee. There are a lot fewer choices in ALL categories than there were when the task was first posted. What happened?

I think these are the final choices now. The link I gave is for the actual voting.

The link in post one is working for me.

Hmmmm, for me using Mozilla Firefox, the first link doesn't go to same site as the 2nd link. I get a weird table when I click on the first link with covers of some of the nominated books.

I guess I'm going to have to pick another book now that the list has been significantly reduced. The horror category originally had 20 nominees, now many less.

That's what it supposed to be Debra. DLM Rose made a spreadsheet of all of the nominees. So the cover is supposed to help you pick.

Use that spreadsheet with all the covers (tabs to different categories) in order to choose. You don't have to choose a new book. :)

OK, now I get it. Thanks for the help!
