Welcome to Hour 24!!! This is Kate from Kate’s Book Nook. I will be your co-host for the final hour. We have made it, ya’ll. We have done this!!!! As per my traditions (I have a lot of traditions) I have included the video for We Are the Champions because, to me, if you have even read for just five minutes, you are a participant and you have done a good job! I am so proud of you. I really hope that you will all be back to join us in April.
As a final thank you, I want to thank you, the readers, for participating in this event. We couldn’t do it without you. I sincerely mean that. Without you all signing up and participating and sharing this event with others, we never would have had an event to begin with. Thank you for coming back and reading books and making this possible. I really do hope to see you next time.
Now, let’s do these last 60 minutes proud and read until the last second!
And the winner, by a mere two votes is… FANTASY!!!
It was a close call, you all. It literally went back and forth several times before the voting ended. But in the end, the masses have spoke and Fantasy is the winner. I hope that you all enjoyed this time and had fun voting. We might come back next time with a March Madness, bracket style of voting.
In case you missed the last three 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 in the final round. 14 genres have dropped down and only two remain. Who will be the winner? That is for you to decide. For this round, you can only vote for one genre. At a quarter till the top of the hour the voting will end and I will update this post to announce the winner. These two have led the vote each round so I am not too surprised to see it come down to Fantasy vs Young Adult. However, which one will win? I honestly don’t know. They have been within a couple votes of each other this whole time. And honestly, it’s the two I have included in my vote each time. I don’t know about you, but I am excited to see who wins! I hope you enjoyed this “Election Season” here at Dewey’s.
