I'm posting this early in April to allow time for voting on the MAY COTM and reserving at library/purchasing by mail, etc.before this month is up.
Although we had a great discussion about suggested April cookbooks, the voting went in an entirely different direction in the run-off. That's fine, but many fewer people voted, and the winning COTM garnered fewer than 15 votes. Several of the earlier popular books in the discussion thread got very few votes. This may well have been due to the lack of
time in which to vote.
I, and I'm sure you all, love reading the suggestions, pans and raves about the COTM candidates. However, when folks start veering away from the subject at hand (easy enough when one message makes one think of something about another subject) it makes it difficult for me to wade through and pick out the finalists. In other words, some veering
is okay, just not waaay off topic and followed by 15 responses.
As usual, PLEASE PUT ALL VOTES IN CAPS. non-caps will not be counted.
If you want to see the discussions of suggested books from the APRIL COTM voting and the run-off discussion, they are in the general Home Cooking thread and you can search for them "cookbook of the month April".
One more thing that you may want to consider is the availability
and/or expense of a cookbook. Putting forth a book that is not widely
available, has few online recipes and costs $50, will certainly lessen
the number of participants. This is just a suggestion.
So? What are you waiting for?
VOTING 1ST ROUND: Last day Saturday (April 12)
VOTING ON RUN-OFF: Sunday April 13 to Saturday, April 19th
I'd like to have the final book chosen by no later than Sunday, April 20th, which will give you six days to vote for the winner.
Let the games begin!
