Power to the People…Meaning, You: The Undead Poll is Now Open!
Here is YOUR chance to have a say in the BoB. You see, every contender has the chance to come back to participate in the Big Kahuna round.
How you may ask is this possible? Well, after being eliminated books make their way to the BoB Land of the Dead. And you, yes you, have a chance to resurrect one of them, your favorite, to come back for the final bout.
And so here is how works. Before the Battle begins you may vote for the contender you most want to come back after being eliminated. (Click on the Undead Poll link on the sidebar to vote. Once please!) The poll will be open until March 6th, giving you plenty of time to campaign for your favorite (as a certain scientist did last year) here in the comments, on your blog (and we will start the Peanut Gallery posts soon then), on twitter, your local water cooler, or wherever else you like.
Hear our contenders plead …
