Welcome to the AAR Annual Reader Poll for 2008 Books!

The yearly readers’ poll has become a tradition at AAR. Many of our readers plan and prepare for it during their reading year, and we are more than pleased to continue this tradition. However, in the same spirit of change with which we are approaching many things at the site, we made some changes to the reader ballot. We hope this will create a tighter and cleaner analysis of the reading year and make it an easier and more inviting experience for readers. We hope you, our readers, are happy with the changes that have been made, and we look forward to counting your ballots!

The results of this poll are keenly anticipated by the staff of AAR and our readers. We are an active and vocal site, but we also know there are many visitors who are happy to sit back and observe the dialogue. The poll gives those who aren’t as vocal the opportunity to let the romance community know what they thought about the books of the year.

We do this poll both for our readers and because we think it’s fun! We would like this year’s to be the best, most representative poll ever, so make your voice heard and cast your vote today! Remember that that poll closes at midnight, February 17th.

Please keep in mind that in order for your ballot be be valid you must vote in at least six different categories.
