This is totally ridiculous. How am I supposed to know how many times to vote?

Given we only have 58 votes currently and we don't have that many members, that's not possible.

Sure, it's possible. All you need is a DRE machine.

There's also a bug with vbulletin software where people that get banned on sites end up with some ludicrous number of posts. That was the allusion I was going for, but the karma one is funny.

17 hours 1 minute and 20 seconds to go

This is one vote I am highly anticipating. 65 votes so far and we don't know what the voting spread is going to be like.

So in order to get a good read out of A Canticle For Leibowitz, you'd have to buy the mobi, strip the DRM and possibly convert as the PDF is not going to read well and the mobi won't work on any reader. So really, both of these books I hope are out of the running due to the issues mentioned.
It is DRM free, easily converted.

Why is it ONLY available in extra large print?
That's just weird....particularly if it's DRM free.

I don't know but what's wrong with large print? Looks very nice on my iPOD Kindle app, where the print is usually too small for me. I suppose if you convert it you could use smaller fonts.

That link does work. Maybe the link was botched when copied over.
