Hour 22 – 8 Remain…


This is Kate from Kate’s Book Nook and I will be your cohost for the remainder of this event! You are doing so great! Don’t give up now!!!

I would like to take a moment and thank all the mini-challenge hosts. Aren’t these all so much fun? And without so many people volunteering to to host a mini-challenge, we would not be able to do this by ourselves. And all these mini-challenges are part of what makes this event so unique and so much fun! Isn’t the book community so amazing? I hope that you’ve had a lot of fun, because I know I certainly have.

Genre Election

In case you missed the last update, let me briefly tell you what is going on here for the rest of the readathon. This year, during these last four hours, we are going to hold our own election. The contestants (16 of the top genres according to goodreads) are up for election on which genre is the preferred genre for readathoners. After each round of voting half of the contestants will continue to the next round and half will “drop out” of the election. I will tally the votes at quarter to the hour so I have time to make the next poll. I hope that you all enjoy this and don’t take it too seriously. It is all meant to be in good fun.

We are now onto round 2 of voting. Half of the genres have acknowledged that they won’t be the Supreme Genre. But half of them are still holding out hope. For this round, you can vote for four genres. This uses the honor system, so please don’t select more than four. So pick the four genres you love best. The options are up to you. But at a quarter till the top of the hour, only four will remain, so choice wisely!

Round 2 – Please select 4 genres only! Thank you!
