Yaaaayyy!! I voted today. For those of you who haven’t voted yet, there are only 5 days left to vote. I decided to go ahead and vote because I already had a ton of books for which I wanted to vote for and I didn’t need the extra stress of adding more books to the list.

Oh Jill ... I still have a few categories that I can't make up my mind on! I'm going to sit myself down this evening and finalize my list!

That's nice! I like your list, because there's many books that I've read :) I'm not good for this voting, so I don't usually do it.

I wanted to vote this year, but I find it a little overwhelming because there are so many categories. But I guess I could just vote in whichever I want to, right? Maybe I'll try. :)

Oh ladies, you definitely should vote! I believe you only need to fill out six categories for it to be considered a valid ballot. I myself didn't vote in all of the categories. Well, if you decide not to vote, maybe post a pretend ballot on your blog :)
