    I'm only disappointed that Black House isn't on it. But then again, I haven't read 11/22/63 yet, so what do I know?
    Oh yeah, what I know is that in reality, It is a little better than The Stand.

    bears are still sulking. They can't get over the sad fact that It can never win the whole thing.

    Could be worse, bears: at least it wasn't voted out in the first round! (Yes, I'm still sulking over that horrendous mistake with Life on Mars back in the tv tournament. If ever we have another contest, it had better get to the final next time! )


    I help where I can.
    I will not fight!

    Keep your chin up Mr. Bears. I was a bit shocked that they were separated by over 1% though. I thought it would have been a little closer.

    It's ok, Heathers feel the same way
    I'm also sad that The Long Walk got left out of the top 10 this year. But very happy that Duma Key worked it's way up to spot 6.

    It was close though. Had It won the last poll against The Stand, then it would have taken first place.

    Why do you say that? In prior years it was always close between The Stand, It and DT2:

    First Constant Reader Awards (2009)
    1. The Stand (8.425725232) (94.67%)
    2. Drawing (8.233333333) (92.51%)
    3. It (8.187809036) (92.00%)

    Second Constant Reader Awards (2010)
    1. The Stand (8.599695122) (96.63%)
    2. It (8.241979950) (92.61%)
    3. Drawing (8.058128079) (90.54%)

    So this time it's actually the closest it's ever been.
