The top five votegetters are highlighted; each will be reviewed within the next 10 days, in order of finish.  Since this seemed to be fairly popular, might run something similar to this around the end of February for books that I might otherwise not review in a timely fashion.

Anybody else (pleasantly) surprised by the results of this poll?

The things I voted for ended up in the top five, so I am pleased. Not *that* surprised, though, to learn that I am the voice of the masses.
