    Default 2018: Overview of the results so far (Round 1)

    The 2018 Constant Reader Awards (CRAs) are here, with Round 1 polls opening each Tuesday and Thursday from January 16 until March 1. Each poll will be open for 7 days and close automatically. Then the FAS (Final Average Score, an average of all received votes) will be calculated and posted at the end of the poll and updated here as well. The top 30 books (highlighted in green) will move on to Round 2, to begin on March 13. The books in these Round 1 brackets are not competing against one another, so each is to be judged on its own merits, regardless of the bracket it's in.

    Bracket 1: opened January 16
    Bracket 2: opened January 18
    Bracket 3: opened January 23
    Bracket 4: opened January 25
    Bracket 5: opened January 30
    Bracket 6: opened February 1
    Bracket 7: opened February 6
    Bracket 8: opened February 8
    Bracket 9: opened February 13
    Bracket 10: opened February 15
    Bracket 11: opened February 20
    Bracket 12: opened February 22

    The first polls have just closed and I've added a Standings table to the first post, which is continually being updated. We've had great level of participation so far, with 30+ votes in most polls, so please please please keep that up, folks! Thank you!

    On the trivia side of things, with Bracket 1 closing, this was the first time Night Shift finished second in its bracket. It's always been third, with the top two always being 'Salem's Lot and The Shining, naturally. Even though the books are no longer in competition against each other within the brackets, that's still a noteworthy note, I thought

    Also, as far as the Standings are concerned, judging by past years, a score of roughly 3.9 or around 78% will be needed to make it into Round 2.

    The second bracket's closed and the standings updated. This is easily the lowest The Stand has ever scored: 4.537037037 (its lowest score was 4.724137931 in 2009). Is its five-peat in danger? We shall see.

    Also, I've made an executive decision to state that a book was rated only one number, so if two or more different numbers tied for most votes, it's the highest number.

    Sorry for being late, but the fifth bracket just went up and the third one was closed. And this is kinda unprecedented, as Different Seasons takes first place over The Stand. Its highest score and placement in Round 1, at least so far.

    Standings have been updated with the recent bracket closing. I just wanted again to thank everyone for keeping up participation around that 30-vote mark. Thank you!

    Sorry, I couldn't update the table last night with the brackets that closed yesterday, but I just did it now. Amazingly, DT2 came in way way under what it normally received, the lowest of which was in 2014 at 4.603448276. Those two 1s really screwed it.

    Bracket 6 and 7 were the dark ages for SK books for me. Many stinkers in my opinion during this period.
    Wanted:

    'Salem's Lot Portfolio #606. (could just trade limitation sheets).

    With the Bracket 7 polls closing last night, the following books have been eliminated: The Tommyknockers, Gerald's Game, Danse Macabre, Roadwork, and Rose Madder. That last one kills me, because I love Rose Madder and it's currently sitting last

    How did you determine which to eliminate between Carrie and the Running man?

    They got the same rating (3.5) and percentage, but Carrie placed higher due to being rated 3.5 by more votes than The Running Man. That was the tie-breaker. Didn't think it would ever come to that.

    Also this is by far the best The Green Mile ever placed in the first round. It came closest in 2012 with 4.720000000.

    That's a bummer, I love Gerald's Game Still kicking myself for not making it back into the thread in time to vote for it. There's some at the bottom that I wish made it on, and quite a few up top that should be at the bottom

    Yes, with 25 spots left undetermined, the top five cannot not advance, so those five have clinched a spot in Round 2 and have been marked accordingly on the schedule list.

    very sad. I like Rose Madder, love The Tommyknockers, and adore Roadwork.

    totally off-topic, but. I've been wondering since morning who the hell mae is, how come s/he runs the awards, and, most alarming, how come they've been here since 2007 and collected nine little green rep squares without me knowing

    ...suddenly it dawned upon me. ***sigh of relief***

    pablo, what Mae? West????

    With today's closings, On Writing, Everything's Eventual, The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon, From a Buick 8, and Song of Susannah are eliminated.

    The Shining, The Eyes of the Dragon, Pet Sematary, The Long Walk, The Waste Lands advance.
