Picking a Favorite is So Hard-Restorer CHALLENGE #2

But not impossible. 

Your NEXT challenge in the Restorer Signed Copy give away is to follow this link and then scroll down and follow the directions for the voting.


Do not vote FOR Sharon Hinck's nominated title UNLESS YOU HAVE READ IT.

The whole point of the voting is for the one that is actually the most popular to stand up head and shoulders above the rest. I didn't vote for her, I voted for George Bryan Polivka's book. Why? Because in my heart of hearts I believe, Bryan's book is better. That book of his, verses that book of hers. If the Restorer had been up there, I would have cried and probably not voted, because I wouldn't have been able to pick. Thankfully, you can nominate up to three titles for consideration. Remember, I don't want you to skew the voting for Sharon--I just want you to vote. Vote for whomever you like best. And if you haven't read the books DO NOT VOTE.

Here's what you need to do (this is also important or you're not going to get credit, just the knowledge that you voted):

1) Go to the linked site
2) Click on the voting tab
3) Fill out the information
5.) Go into MS paint or whatever equivalent you have and paste the image of the voting screen that you've filled out there. Save it as a .bmp or .jpg
6.) Finish voting
7.) Email me the screen capture of your voting in the pole
8.) Receive 1,000 points

All e-mails must be received no later than Sunday November 22nd for full credit. Partial credit will be given up to  November 24th.

So Scirbe.....seems I'd already voted in the CS awards....can I still have credit? I'm not sure if it'd be fair for me to vote again ::laughs::
