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?

How many are there? Enough for a mini poll? (Like two rounds)

maybe best "decade" of the series? for example, books 1-10, versus 11-20, versus 21-30 and so forth? personally, i'm a big fan of the 40s and 50s just because the characters had been fully established, the plots were still realistic and no one had become a caricature yet.

Did you consider including Thanksgiving, or even other holidays like Valentine's Day?

Idea: we could vote on Kristy's great ideas (excluding the BSC itself) to name the best one. Or, the best event that the BSC has held (like the Kwanzaa event, the earth festival, the Mother's Day surprise, the baby float...) I don't really know what the standards would be for determining the "entrants," but I always like the "Hey, gang, let's put on a _____" books.

What about best 'Friends Forever' book? Has that been done yet? Maybe we could also do best episode of the tv show or best book in the California Diaries series :)

Not everyone has read all the FFs though, either.

Oooh, brilliant idea!

Best Holiday book. But this time, include ALL the holidays. Even the made-up ones, like Valentine's Day. That'd be fun! :)
EditorNia: Rosyeditornia on December 20th, 2008 11:29 pm (UTC)
ALL the Holidays should include: Valentine's Day, Easter (if it was celebrated in the books. Was it? I can't recall), Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and New Year's Eve/Day, methinks. :)
