Thanks to everyone who has voted so far! As of May 1, more than 200 individual books and book series have been included in the voting. The 150 individual books or series of books with the most votes across all five heats of Round 1 will advance to Round 2 which will narrow Lindsborg’s Top 150 favorites to the Top 25.

In May, we have the final heat of voting for Round 1. Round 1E is now open and everyone is invited to vote as many times as they would like throughout the month. 40 nominations of favorite adult nonfiction & classics have been received; if your favorite was not submitted before December 31, 2018, you still have time to write-in your vote this month.
