Round 2 votes are in and tallied - just in time for Thanksgiving!
Those voted The Best won by pretty large margins all around, though the online votes between The Hunger Games and The Lord of the Rings were closer than we expected! With Lord of the Rings going head to head with Jurassic Park on the left and The Princess Bride dueling with The Help on the right, it looks like this'll be a pretty tough semi-final vote for Round 3. Every vote is sure to count in this round - so make sure you get yours in either in-person before you leave for Thanksgiving or online over the break! We will be tallying the votes from Round 3 up on December 3rd.
The Worst Brackets saw a couple closer battles, with Eragon just beating out the cartoon version of The Hobbit, and Lord of the Flies taking down Watchmen. One person even put in a write-in vote for Twilight in the Man in the Iron Mask-Scarlet Letter battle... but that wasn't enough to take away from The Scarlet Letter's ultimate victory there (Next time...). So it's become a Classics battle in the right semifinal vote, and a battle of Juvenile vs. YA fantasy on the left, promising an interesting final battle for Worst to come - for sure!
New voting slips are out by the exhibit, and the online surveys have been updated for Round 3 voting - so let the battles begin! And, of course, don't forget to check out the titles and their visual adaptations in the cases by the 2nd floor elevators, during our normal library hours over the rest of the semester and winter break.
