is there a link where you can click to vote? I'm staring at that page and don't know how to enter for the contest.

Can someone tell me please? I would love to enter for this.

Anybody happen to notice the counter backed up about 2,000 this morning? Man, that hurt my chances big time!

Sherry, I hadn't noticed the counter turning backwards 2000, though I thought it had been higher when I looked last time.  Why do you suppose it went back so much?

I picked April 1 at 10:13.  Love the idea of it happening on April Fool's Day and the 10:13 is an X-Files thing. *g*

Stephanie, I have no idea why it went backwards, other than maybe there were just that many more books requested than posted on Friday AM? I don't know, but it's really weird, it still isn't back up to where it was at 2:30ish Friday AM.

Maybe a bunch of people put their shelves on hold for the Easter holiday.

You know, Melissa, that's the best idea possible! With spring breaks & the holidays, I bet you probably figured out the riddle! That would make perfect sense!
