  1. In the future, you might want to avoid saying who wins. Part of the fun (for me, at least) is not knowing which book the judge picks until the end of their essay. You guys blew it for me yesterday and then today’s contest had a footnote in the first paragraph that led me right to the judge’s decision. So, I’m 2 for 2 on having the result spoiled for me. It feels a bit like watching a sporting event on DVR when I already know the result — it’s still enjoyable, but the excitement is gone.
