I voted, but may I suggest having the ability to change our votes?
I know that if I voted on one early, but it got so few votes to be out of the running, and maybe there was a tie between two others...I'd like the ability to change my vote :D

I agree. I don't see why it has to be so final. We could change this for you if you like? :)

Also, are the same genres going to appear all of the time? If so, that might get a little repetitive. People are slaves to habit :)

Now all I can think about is Winter's Tale :lol:

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll change that for next month. For this time if you change your mind, how about we comment here something like "can I please change my vote from historical fiction to book made into movie." You won't even have to explain, I'll just make a note of it :) And, if we have a tie, I'll post a second poll :)
