These are both good points.
I think any way we do multiple choice will work well and be better than single choice, though I think non-restricted multiple choice voting may be best for our club because of the above, and also because:
-Simplicity - There's nothing to worry about or keep in mind as one votes besides choosing which books one would like to vote for.
-No Extra Work/No Errors - There is no extra work for Tom, nothing to check on, nothing to adjust if a voter messes up, no chance of errors.
