LibraryReads 2015 “Favorite of Favorites” Voting Now Open

Once again, it’s time to choose your favorite 2015 LibraryReads titles!

LibraryReads is celebrating their second year by having library staff vote on their favorites from the October 2014 through September 2015 lists. (You may vote even if you’ve never nominated a title, and no Edelweiss or NetGalley account is needed.) Starting Thursday, September 17, we invite library staff to vote on their 10 favorite titles from the long list of all 110 titles; the top 25 of vote-getters will then move on to the short list, for another round of votes.

The ten top vote-getters will be released on December 1 as the “Favorite of Favorites” list, with the number one favorite, by votes, taking the top place on the list. The “Favorite of Favorites” list will take the place of the traditional December list, with the top nominations for titles due to be published in December 2015 and January 2016 appearing together on the January 2016 list.

Got all that? Here’s the “Favorite of Favorites” Voting Timeline:

October 14: “Favorite of Favorites” longlist votes due

December 1: “Favorite of Favorites” list released
