They're the books no one seems to have heard of. Maybe folks don't even know who the author is. You love them, but for some reason they just haven't caught on. Today's poll is for all your esoteric, cult, and just plain unknown-to-the-world favorites.
Of course....voting might get a little weird as people vote on titles most have never heard of, but the small turn out might be worth the
You may nominate TWO (2) books. Any nominations you give me beyond your first two will be ignored because I'm megalomaniacal. (Though I will count them as "seconds" if someone else nominates the same book.)
As usual, I leave discretion up to you. Best selling authors obviously have no place here, but I'm not going to dig through the New York bestsellers lists for the year in question to make sure that each nominee has been sufficiently unpopular. If you believe you like a book that it seems like no one else has read and the author isn't a household name, we'll take it.
You may, and SHOULD, "second" as many of the existing nominations as you wish. While I recognize that a poll about "books no one has ever heard of" might not get enough seconds to make that the cut off rubric, it is likely that at least one or two people out there have given your book a try and will chime in. (At last you know you're not alone!) We may run this poll without seconds if we don't get enough, but usually there are too many raw nominations for a reasonable poll. So this might be the time if you know that one friend who's also read it, to cajole them into giving you a second.
While I technically take nominations from anywhere, you should make a comment to this post. Comments left on social media where I cross post (like my Facebook page) don't tend to get seconded there because they are so quickly buried beneath ever spewing content.
I'll take nominations till mid-month, and then I will put up the poll.
