We’re so glad you asked!
You may vote for finalists from May 1st to May 21st.
Be sure to review and pay close attentiontothe eligibility requirements:
- You’ll only get to submit the form once. Multiple entries will be disqualified.
- You can only vote for books you’ve actually read, so read all the books you want to vote on before submitting the form.
- If you have read a minimum of two bookson the nomination list, you’re eligible to vote.
- For each book you’veactually read(minimum of two), we’re asking for a star rating and justification.
- Star Ratings: 5 stars (Fabulous book!), 4 stars (Excellent book), 3 stars (Good book), 2 stars (It was just OK), 1 star (Poor)
- You’ll also be required to include a brief but specific explanation of the reason you assigned the particular star rating you chose (max 500 characters).
- This means you’ll be able to move books up in ranking by giving a high star rating and to move books down by giving them a lower score—as long as you can justify your rating.
- Don’t five-star a book and one-star everything else, Maleficent. That’s a good way to get your vote disqualified. Be thoughtful. The authors deserve that.
Remember, with great power comes great responsibility. Use your power wisely. You only have one chance to vote.
