The YA Reader Nominee is:
An interesting pick, and definitely one of the best books of 2012.
The Contemporary Reader Nominee is:
Julie James was the runner up to last year's tournament, and with reader support behind her she may go equally far this year.
The Historical Reader Nominee is:
This book won by a good margin, so this book clearly also has some fan support behind it. Excellent!
The GLBT Reader Nominee is:
This book took the lead early in the reader nominations, and stayed permanently ahead of the other books in the results. But I also wanted to point out one of the second place books, Country Mouse, by Amy Lane and Aleksandr Voinov, which collected a good number of votes in the last few days, too.
The PNR/SF Reader Nominee is:
Never doubt that enthusiastic campaigning can work in a book's favor – this book had nearly twice as many votes as the others behind it.
The Series Reader Nominee is:
Again, many more votes than the next runners-up, likely a result of campaigning online.
The Novella Reader Nominee is:
This one was a very close race – a lot of good novellas with a lot of reader support!
The Crossover/SRE Reader Nominee is:
Campaigning: it does a DABWAHA book good.
