  1. There were a lot more that I hadn't read on the list of nominees than that I had!

  2. Chris, that really puts it in perspective because I know you must read about three times more than I do!

  3. Oh, that's right! I wish someone was writing something as good for the one sport I'm into, boxing. :D

  4. I thought the same thing - I've read a lot of books, but not a lot of these books! It's making it quite difficult to participate ;)

  5. Sadonna, hi, there! And thank you for the comment. I know what you mean. There must be a staggering amount of stuff coming out each month -- or even each day! -- in our m/m genre. Makes it hard to participate in voting and even hard to find the good stuff when buying.
