Want some poll results?

Before I get to the results, I'd just like to thank whomever it was who anonymously bought the 50bookchallenge community a paid account for the next 12 months. Most excellent! :)

A few notes on the voting:

  • As I mentioned in the poll entry, I weighted responses based on the 1-5 ranking you gave to each book in the poll and tabulated results based on the weighted vote counts. Because I'm a geek with an insatiable curiosity for data trends, I also sorted/subtotaled by pure vote count (not weighted) and the results were almost exactly the same in the top 20. A few minor swapped placings, but overall the same group of books.

  • For ease of counting, and in an attempt to lend a little more clarity to the results, I aggregated a number of votes for individual books in popular series (such as Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, etc.). I hope no one minds.


Having said that...here's what y'all had to say!
