Title: GS Book of '08!
Post by: blitzonator on April 02, 2008, 02:45:23 pm
Yes, this is the first annual GS Book of '08!

Here's the deal:

We have a lot of good books and authors talked about so I thought, Hey, what's the favorite book? How about a vote?

I have made this to solve that. This is simple, three steps.
1) Post Your favorite books in this form:

NAME:
AUTHOR:
DATE PUBLISHED:

2) We take the most common books and put them in a poll, the one with the least votes is removed, poll restarts, least votes removed... all the way to ten books.

3) We then hold six more polls with the same books, different questions.

Favorite book? (Starter and decider)
Favorite book art? (Second)
Favorite plot? (Third)
Favorite background story? (Forth)
Favorite character development? (Fifth)
Favorite ending? (Sixth)

after that, the winner of each poll will be Crowned "The best (book art, book, plot... ETC) of GS '08! (Maybe a banner for Sigs?)

I'll play a wild card and say "Choke" by Chuck Pahlahniuk. But yeah, it really is 1984.
