Vote In The 2023 Book Review Contest
If you’ve read the finalists of this year’s book review contest, vote for your favorite here. Voting will stay open until Wednesday.
Thanks to a helpful reader who offered to do the hard work, we’re going to try ranked choice voting. You’ll choose your first-, second-, and third-favorite book reviews. If your favorite gets eliminated, we’ll switch your vote to your second favorite, and so on. If for some reason I can’t figure out how to make this work on time, I’ll switch to first-past-the-post, ie only count your #1 vote. Feel free to vote for your own review, as long as you honestly choose your second and third favorites.
In case you need a refresher, here are the finalists, in order of appearance:
1: Cities And The Wealth Of Nations / The Question Of Separatism
2: Lying For Money
3: Why Machines Will Never Rule The World
