The software doesn't allow this, and that's not likely to change anytime soon.

As far as I know, the software doesn't allow "select 3 choices;" people are on the honor system for that. (However, mods could throw out all votes by anyone who selects 4 or more; that would require more work on their part, but probably not be required often.)

I'm torn on open-vs-closed voting.

On the one hand, if the vote is closed, people vote for what they want to read & discuss, not what they think is likely to win. On the other, as the keeper of the list, if the vote is open, I know which book won sooner.

No strong opinions either way.
