Just for the fun of it, the very first two nominations that came in last week were only eleven seconds apart. Hallie Tibbets earns our profound thanks and the number one spot for getting a nomination in at exactly 12:02:26 on Oct. 1. Her nomination was for The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson, a teen fantasy novel.

In second was Elijah Z with his nomination in Graphic Novels, Sidekicks, by Dan Santat.

Thanks to both of you for your enthusiasm!
