Hour 22 – 8 Down and 7 to Go

This is Kate from Kate’s Book Nook and I will be your cohost for the remainder of this event! You are doing so great! Don’t give up now!!!

I would like to take a moment and thank all the mini-challenge hosts. Aren’t these all so much fun? And without so many people volunteering to to host a mini-challenge, we would not be able to do this by ourselves. And all these mini-challenges are part of what makes this event so unique and so much fun! Isn’t the book community so amazing? I hope that you’ve had a lot of fun, because I know I certainly have.

Battle of the Genres – Survivor Style

In case you missed the last update, let me briefly tell you what is going on here for the rest of the readathon. This year, during these last four hours, we are playing Survivor, Genre style. The contestants (16 of the top genres according to goodreads) are up for a vote on which genre is the preferred genre for readathoners. After each round of voting half of the contestants will continue to the next round and half will be eliminated. YOU ARE VOTING ON THE GENRES YOU LIKE THE LEAST! I will tally the votes at quarter to the hour so I have time to make the next poll. I hope that you all enjoy this and don’t take it too seriously. It is all meant to be in good fun.

We are now onto round 2 of voting. Half of the genres have been voted off the shelf. But half of them are still holding out hope. For this round, you can vote for four genres you want eliminated from this competition. This uses the honor system, so please don’t select more than four. So pick the four genres you love the least. The options are up to you. But at a quarter till the top of the hour, only four will remain, so choice wisely!

Voted off the shelves:

  • Romance
  • Classics
  • Manga
  • Paranormal
  • Non-Fiction
  • Horror
  • Poetry
  • Religious
Round 2 – Please vote for up to 4 genres that you wish to be voted off the shelves!
