Discussion does influence unless everyone is lying. Even then it still influences, becuase there is no way to know if everyone is lying nor what it is they are lying about.. If I were to take you all at your word, then I should not vote for what I really want to read because it has already been read by just about everyone who has commented before me, and will therefore not win the vote.

On the other hand, I have not read it, I want to read it and it will be free to me becuase my husband has read it and owns a copy.

That's the way to vote. Vote for what you want. I voted for what I voted for because of the ones that I have not read it sounds like the best one to me. I've had it in my TBR pile for a while and I finally got around to making sure it was nicely formatted and ready to go for when it wins. Chances are even if it doesn't win, the fact that it's on my 650 now means it'll get read that much sooner.

I find this blind vote to be a bit exciting. I keep coming back to peek at the results, only to remember that I can't.

I'm not impressed with the list of books. I think it is for the most part very predictable.

I like this blind vote. I'm very interested to see how it goes. I'm hoping we have votes for all the books this time.
