Reader's Choice Winners

So NOTHING has been posted online, but according to the list posted at my local library...

Winner: State of the Onion by Julie Hyzy
Second Place: My Enemy's Cradle by Sara Young
Third Place: Dewey by Vicki Myron

Read all three, really liked all three.... but a little surprised. Honestly, I thought The Guernsey Literary and Potatoe Peel Pie Society would win. I don't think it was even top 5. Weird.

Singularity's Ring by Paul Melko was the very last on the list, which is kind of sad. I liked that one.

Apparently, the winners had 203, 182 and 170 votes, respectively. I have no idea what that means. They could be only counting "loved it" ballots.... or those plus "it was ok" ballots.... no clue.

Really, though, I hate that there are only 3 options. "I loved it" "it was ok" and "didn't like it". Really? What about "I liked it"? Sometimes you like a book but it just isn't love. And what about "I absolutely hated it"? "Didn't like it" just isn't always strong enough...

Oh, and on a completely unrelated note, Boo's swine flu test was NEGATIVE!!!!!!! WOOHOO!


  1. Hm...I loved Guernsey too! I thought everyone did. (and congrats on not having swine flu in the fam!)

  2. I know, isn't it weird?

    Thanks! We were all relieved the test was negative.
