Bestseller might be a good idea. Would it have to be a current best seller? We could also do other lists too... like Hugo nominees or well, there's got to be other writing awards.

That is an interesting idea... but I wonder if it would also discourage people from nominating a book. I think the more casual we make this the more people will play along. I also think the more people we have involved the more traffic the discussion threads will get. As you say, some have been pretty thin while others were quite busy.
