I’ve got some emails wondering what the heck all this picking and polling and point scoring is about. Here’s the explanation.
There are 64 books that are competing against each other for the ONE BOOK TO RULE THEM ALL. 300+ people filled out a bracket identifying which book that they thought would win each round.
The next step is for the books to compete. We held polls today (and will tomorrow) asking you to vote for which book was “best”. If you hadn’t read a book and thus didn’t have a judgment about that, it was best to vote for the book you picked to go forward.
As the polls closed, we have updated the results. You can see your results by clicking here. This is a listing of all the players. Find your name and click on it. It will show you your picks. The blue titles are titles that are still competing. The red strike throughs are picks that you made that lost. For each book you picked right, you are awarded 1 point. At the end of today, the most points any one ballot can have is 16. The current standings are found here.
