    And just like that our first annual Constant Reader Awards have come to a close. Huge thanks to Aaron for organizing this monstrous tournament of polls, and to Jean for the help. And to the rest of you for voting and discussing the votes and just generally making this a very cool experience.

    In the order specified.

    ::bows modestly::

    pablo did one hell of a job, hats off! Aaron made the whole thing possible, and gave it this flourish of professionalism he possesses in such perfection. The bear only helped here and there.

    I think it has been fantastic! We need to do this every year, and then compare (with charts, of course - just imagine a ten- or twenty-year chart of how our preferences changed!)


    Ask not what bears can do for you, but what you can do for bears. (razz)
    When one is in agreement with bears one is always correct. (mae)

    bears are back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This should definitely be done on an annual basis, so we'll do this again right after people have had enough time to read Under the Dome (I'm guessing around New Year's?).

    I think the results are largely unsurprising (from all I've read of people's opinions on many of these subjects in various threads) and I pretty much agree with the majority of the winners.

    The only surprise is the absence of It, given it finished third overall.

    That's the reason for my "pretty much agree" as opposed to completely agree.

    Agreed. I was shocked that The Drawing of the Three beat it out, but that's just me.

    I think this is the one category my heart really cared about strongly, and I am glad Henry Leyden won! Oh, I'd just love to sit around and have coffee with that guy!
