I think between my January 5th pick and the revelation of the only days (or hours) away, I'm in a pretty good place.

Oh darn...did I insert a link into that icon? Huh! Don't want to give too much away!

191,967 members today. Still a little below last year's trend. But it's really what the numbers are tomorrow and the day after that will be the vital ones.

Well, because last year those are the days when we saw a massive jump in membership numbers. If anyone's going to get the "prize" this time around, we need a Christmas boost!

192,080 today. I wonder what the rest of today will bring?

The green line is last years plot, moved to align with this year's graph on the 18th December.

Oh. I'm too late to play.

But perhaps my presence at MobileRead will give the membership numbers the boost they needs to match last year's numbers!

Still under trend. But the big jump in numbers happened from now on, presumably as people with ebook readers as Xmas presents ran into their first problem using their devices!

Could be a result of ereading devices having reached a saturation point, although I must confess I expected a bigger boost from the contest than we've seen so far.
