Our friends over at Ender’s Ansible have re-kindled a campaign they started last year to get Ender’s Game onto NPR’s Best 100 Books, which has just recently opened up to nominations for this year’s list. Last year’s category focused on science fiction and fantasy and thanks to fans, Ender’s Game made it on the list as #3. You can check out last year’s list here.
This year NPR has chosen a Young Adult theme for their list.
To nominate Ender’s Game (the series), you’ll need to either log in or register at NPR and then comment with your nominations. They’ll let you nominate up to five books at once, so if you’re a big Harry Potter or Hunger Games fan, you won’t have to choose Ender’s Game over those, you just need to include it in your list!
Even if other people nominate the books you want to nominate, you should still comment if you can since nominations count as votes later down the line. The rules:
1. Limit yourself to five titles per post. Don’t hesitate to nominate a book that someone else has already listed; your entry will count as a vote that will help that title progress to the next round.
2. Nominate “multivolume novels” as one work. The Harry Potter series or the Hunger Games trilogy, for example, will be judged as single, collective works — so don’t bother listing the separate titles in the series.
3. That said, not all series are “multivolume novels.” To be judged as a collective work, the books in a series must be written by the same originating author or authors and must tell a more or less continuous story — usually about a consistent group of characters. So, you can’t nominate the whole Goosebumps series as such, but you can nominate The Horror at Camp Jellyjam as an individual work.
Thanks in advance for helping nominate the series!
