Okay, I know I’ve been cutting the voting off earlier than I said I would. But I am still in Michigan. Grand Rapids yesterday. Lansing today. (To all you Michiganites out there, this area is just plain gorgeous!) But I have to get up at 5:00 (3:00 my time) to catch a flight home. So I need to get some shut eye.
Five more clear winners today. They are:
Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling in a runaway first place (any surprises there?) with 16 votes.
The Time Quartet by Madeline L'Engle with seven votes
And a three way tie for third, with five votes each for: Belgariad and Mallorean by David Eddings, The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan, and The Sword of Truth by Terry Goodkind
All very good books. Let me just give a shout out to a friend and fellow author, Brandon Sanderson who not only has written the Mistborn series, Elantris, and Alcatraz vs the Evil Librarians (a MG fantasy/SciFi) novel, but who was also chosen by Robert Jordan’s widow to write the last book in The Wheel of Time Series. He is a great person. An awesome writer. And definitely the right man for the job.
Okay, on to round 4 ½ where we break some ties, give some drop outs a second chance, and pick the final two novels to make round five. This time you can only vote for up to two.
Thanks again, this has been a lot of fun for me.
Good news by the way. I can go back to the VIZU voting. I wish it showed how many people had voted (to you the readers. I can see it from my side) but at least it works and doesn't break the backspace button on IE browsers.
