Goodreads Choice Awards: Don’t Forget To Vote
November 11, 2011 8 Comments
Have you voted yet for the Goodreads Choice Awards? You can nominate your favorite book of 2011 or vote for books that have been nominated already. You can do so until coming Sunday:
Opening Round: October 31 – November 13, 2011
Voting open to 15 official nominees, and write-in votes can be placed for any eligible book.
Semifinals: November 14 – November 20, 2011
The top 5 write-in votes in each category become official nominees. You can vote for one of the now 20 nominees in each category. Additional write-ins no longer accepted.
Finals: November 21 – November 30, 2011
The field narrows to the top 10 books in each category, and you have one last chance to vote.
Winners will be announced in December.
I’ve voted, though not in all categories, as in some categories I hadn’t read any (good) books. There are about 20 categories and you can vote in as many or as few as you like.
Lifting the veil:
- I voted for State of Wonder (Ann Patchett) in the Favorite Book of 2011 category. In hindsight, there were a few other books that I could have nominated but of the books that were already nominated, this was my favorite.
- In Mystery & Thriller, I voted for Before I Go To Sleep (S. J. Watson). It was already listed, but this was definitely my favorite thriller anyway.
- In Science Fiction, I voted for When She Woke (Hillary Jordan) (no relation to the book above!).
