I do it all the time. Usually I nominate the books I want you
to read, and I vote for the books I'd
like to read, or I'd like to share an opinion upon.
So, for me it's rather a rare situation to vote for the book I nominated (Carmilla was an exception, but during the discussion I were offline, so I did not comment it: sorry for that).
As for secrecy, I prefer hidden votes.
