At 1am Eastern, midnight Central, the voting began! Are you ready?!
Round one is a big one, too, with Cecilia Grant's A Lady Awakened facing Courtney Milan's The Duchess War, and The Fault in our Stars by John Green going up against Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry. And Unspoken and A Notorious Countess Confesses and… I have to go lie down now. Oy.
Then, at 1pm Eastern, noon Central, the next set of polls go up! More voting! More Tweeting! MORE MAYHEM! Just the way we like it.
On 22 March, another set of polls will go up at midnight Central and noon Central. It's two straight days of mania. Then MORE as round 2 begins!
I may need another nap.
Have you seen the bribes and videos offered in support of various books? Susanna Kearsley and her posse of teens are making videos, and she's not even in the tournament this year (which is our fault, picking a book of hers that was reissue. Ooops). Many available teenagers and six year olds were involved in the productions of many of the videos, which is awesome.
Remember, there are prizes for every round, so check your brackets and try to convince your friends to help you out. And perhaps it's time to see how many places near you really do have free WiFi. Each time you sign on from a new IP, you get to vote again (unless someone's already voted from that IP). Mayhem and mania, it is ON.
Good luck everyone!
Now, which book do you think we should we vote for?
