Assorted Poll Results

Looks like I'm not the only one who was thrilled that The Invention of Hugo Cabret won the Caldecott Medal. Hugo was the decisive victor in my poll about the 2008 ALA awards.

Question: Which 2008 ALA Award winners are you the happiest about?


1st place (21 votes)

  • Caldecott: The Invention of Hugo Cabret

2nd place (10 votes)

  • Newbery: Good Masters! Sweet Ladies!

3rd place (9 votes)

  • Geisel: There Is a Bird on Your Head!

4th place (5 votes)

  • Siebert: The Wall

5th place (4 votes)

  • Edwards: Orson Scott Card

6th place (3 votes)

  • King Author: Elijah of Buxton

7th place (2 votes each)

  • King Illustrator: Let it Shine
  • Odyssey: Jazz
  • Printz: The White Darkness
  • Schneider middle grade: Reaching for Sun
  • None of the above
  • I haven't read any of the winning books

8th place (1 vote each)

  • Arbuthnot: Walter Dean Meyers
  • Belpré Illustrator: Los Gatos Black on Halloween
  • Carnegie: Jump In
  • Schneider young children: Kami and the Yaks
  • Schneider teen: Hurt Go Happy

9th place (0 votes each)

  • Batchelder: Brave Story
  • Belpré Author: The Poet Slave of Cuba
  • King/Steptoe New Talent Author: Brendan Buckley's Universe and Everything in It

Let's wrap up some other polls while we're at it. Here are the results from my poll about traveling in the Harry Potter world.

Question: My preferred method of travel in the Harry Potter world would be:


1st place (14 votes)

  • Appartition

2nd place (8 votes)

  • All of the above

3rd place (7 votes)

  • Hogwarts Express

4th place (4 votes each)

  • Broomstick
  • Portkey

5th place (2 votes each)

  • Floo Powder
  • Flying car
  • Hippogriff
  • Walking

6th place (1 vote each)

  • Dragon
  • Knight Bus

7th place (0 votes each)

  • Deluminator
  • London Underground
  • Phoenix
  • Thestral
  • None of the above
I have to agree with the results on this one. After a few recent plane trips, I think apparition is definitely the way to go. I'm willing to deal with the uncomfortable physical side effects and the possibility of splinching in order to get where I want to go instantaneously.

And, here's the results of the poll that had the fewest choices available of any poll I've run so far.

Question: Are you in a book club?


1st place (14 votes)

  • No

2nd place (11 votes)

  • Yes

3rd place (4 votes)

  • I have been in the past
Want to vote for something? No problem. I have two polls currently up. One is about subjects that you'd like to study at Hogwarts. And I just added a new one asking which business establishments in the Harry Potter world you'd like to visit. Happy voting!
