About my nomination of Graphic Novel:









As I said before, I will retract my nomination; no problem, but......Orlok and Elfwreck have seconded it and third it.
I think it is polite to ask both if they agree.
Or I could just let it stand and if nobody votes for it......that's it.
Please let it stand. It could be an interesting category.

It won't work. Most are color. Most are set for a page size larger then a 6" eInk screen. Most are part of a series that's not book one. Overall, it's a disaster and unless someone can come up with good reasons why it would work, then it should just be eliminated from consideration.

Personally, I don't want to read books that I am forced to use my iPad to read. If I want to use my iPad, that should be by my choice.

And if others want to use theirs, or their other tablet, or their PC or try it on their 6" eInk device that's their choice. If you don't like the category, don't vote for it.

As it already has 3 nominations, it is a moot point (IMO).

Thanks, Nyssa. After coming home and getting some sleep, I took care of it from post #31 onward, but you may want to check behind me. I may have missed something.

Now it's off to clean up after the Norton and Crystal. Crystal's wearing a muzzle today because she ate the wife's hair brush while I was sleeping.

That's a terrible excuse for why we should abandon the category. Just cos you don't want to be forced to use your iPad.

Anyway, I'm not withdrawing my nomination.

We already know that you don't even feel obligated to read a choice that you nominated and voted for, so I don't see where force enters into it.

What's with all the demands for retractions? Do we allow them? I'm against them myself. I don't see why you should be able to take back a nomination. If it's a dud it won't get any support; them's the breaks. And if it turns out to be popular, that's sufficient justification.

I'll choose my last option: let the nomination stand and if the Graphic Novel really is a problem, then it won't get any vote.
And it doesn't have to be read on an iPad or ereader; one could also go to the library or such.

As I said; its an experiment. I am going to research which graphic novels have been made that I would like to nominate. I found some links:

http://listverse.com/2008/02/09/top-...raphic-novels/

http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2012...raphic-memoirs

http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/.../graphic-novel
