Well, I must admit that I just love some of these slogans...I voted for several, but I'd say my favourites are

Mobileread: Because Libraries are heavy!

and

Mobileread: Because you can take it with you.

Somehow the second one reminds me of bowerbird:

Because you _can_ take it with you...


EDIT: why can I still vote? I just placed my vote...

I like them all. And I like someone's suggestion that the tagline change regularly, rotating through several of these, if possible. Both these and the logo submissions are cool!


"why can I still vote? I just placed my vote..."

Because we value your opinion so much, we're letting you vote as many times as you want, CommanderROR!

My first thought was to vote for all of them but that wouldn't do any good. Like a donkey between bales of hay there are just too many good ones. Thankfully we don't have to pick just one.

I picked my favorite 5. It was tough! Only one of the ones I picked turned out to be in the running for top choice, but that's ok.

I hate to be negative since these are all very good.

But in an age where "No one reads." some of these are just tooooooo looooong!

Problem with the poll?

Umm... Am I the only one to notice this? This poll summary says "Voters: 99", but when I add up the column I get 306 votes. The percentages add up to 309.06%. That can't be right.

There's a similar problem in the logo contest: It says "Voters: 123" when I count 263 votes, for a grand total of 213.83%.

Is the poll software messed up, or what?

No, it's a multi-vote poll.

Meaning that people can vote for more than one item.

The percentages on this sort of poll are largely worthless, since they don't add up, but the straight out number of votes is what we're looking at, so it's fine for that end.
