By a pretty sizable margin...
#17 - Mary Anne's Bad Luck Mystery!
Halloween is the most popular holiday in the BSC-verse and clearly the fans agree. :D
Next up, Worst Mystery. This one oughtta be fun, since the mysteries are pretty much universally despised. Hee.
I've been making a list of topics for upcoming polls, including Worst Mystery, Favorite Sitting Charge, Least Favorite Sitting Charge (though I'm pretty sure Karen will win that one), Best Parents, Worst Parents, and Best Kristy Idea. For that last one I need nominations since I don't own every book. Any of Kristy's ideas can be nominated; just make sure you reference the book number the idea is found in and a brief description of the idea.
For example, #1 - Kristy creates the BSC, or #114 - Christmas/Hannukah/Kwanzaa Town.
Well, I thought it would be a good idea to have a "Best Holiday Book" poll next given that it's almost Christmas/Hanukkah...but then I realized that there are precious few books specifically about the holidays (there's plenty set in December/winter, but the holidays don't really feature prominently enough for them to qualify.) So that poll probably won't happen.
So, I need ideas for what we should vote on next.
Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
Whoops! I didn't realize when I closed the last poll that there was a tie between two of the books. So we need to have a tie-breaker.
The books tied are #3 - Mallory and the Ghost Cat and #25 - Kristy and the Middle School Vandal.
Any ideas on how we should do this tie-breaker? I'm thinking it needs to be different from simply voting again. I'll keep thinking, but I have to leave for work now. I'm open to suggestions!
How come some of you skip questions? Some of the questions have answers from everybody, but quite frequently there are skipped questions. This strikes me as very weird. I think it would be fairer if everybody answered every question, don't you?
I'd like to do a series of polls to determine Claudia's best outfit. Stacey's too, eventually. However, I don't own all the books and I don't have the time to compile a comprehensive list of outfits. So if you guys can please do some detective work for me, that would be really helpful. Leave comments to this post with the book number the outfit comes from and the description of the outfit.
I know not every book featured outfits, though. If you come across a book with no outfits, again leave a comment with the book number and just say, "no outfits". Once every book is accounted for we'll begin those polls. I'll add this post to the memories so it can be easily found.
In the meantime, while this info trickles in (and I'll look up a few myself - I know there are outfits in #2, #71, and #91, all of which I own) we'll do polls to determine Best Mystery, by random pairings. What I'll do is randomly draw two mystery titles out of a hat and they'll face off. Those winners will then face off against each other, etc., but no more "which of these five" is best. That should make the voting last a little longer and be more interesting. I should be able to get the first poll up later today on my lunch break.
