    Default 2012: Overview of the results so far (Round 2)

    Designated in blue are the Round 1 (R1) bracket runners-up; designated in green are the R1 bracket winners; designated in maroon are the R1 wildcards. These designations remain for the duration of Round 2 (R2), but bear no effect on the book's standings. "FAS" stands for "Final Accumulated Score", a sum of the R1 "Final Average Score" (also "FAS"), and the Overall Average Grade ("OAG") obtained in Round 2.

    To refresh, books in Round 2 are NOT going head to head, just being graded individually. They will earn additional points, up to 3, and the top 10 then move on to Round 3, where books DO face off against each other.

    I'm not sure I'm going to participate in round 2. I have a difficult time grading books based on plot and character development. I just know that I like what I like. Explaining why I like something is tough.

    what pablo said

    I too noticed that grading does not reflect my opinion of a book as a book. Too much depends on how well it was written; hell, everything depends on it. Maybe we should include this criterion next time

    dear friends, please, vote and discuss! there's been unprecedentedly little activity in those threads

    Modified the listing in the first post somewhat to hopefully make the scoring read clearer and more informative.

    Oh no, I was just looking at the current standings and The Long Walk is mostly likely not going to move on. Such a shame, it deserves to be there

    Yes, it currently sits precariously in the tenth and final spot, with ten books remaining to be graded. Very likely it will get displaced, though not a given.

    When this started I took all 60 books and sorted them into my order of preference. I had a top 20, a middle 20 and bottom 20. Actually it was a bottom 19 because there is one book I haven't read yet.

    After the first round only 4 of my top 20, half of my middle 20 and all but 4 of my bottom 19 had been knocked out. Now with the second round not even complete all of my bottom 20 are out. 16 of my top 20 still remain including my overall #1.
