Your votes are counted…

Just a quick note to thank you for all your votes on which shelves I should be building next at the Packabook Store.

Your choices have all been counted and I can now inform you of our upcoming destinations.

I hereby give you the latest league table for our next country!

COUNTRIES
Albania – 1
Austria – 1
Belgium – 1
Belize – 1
Bulgaria – 1
Cambodia – 1
Canada – 1
Costa Rica – 1
Ethiopia – 1
Israel and Palestinian Territories – 2
Jordan – 1
Kenya – 1
Kuwait – 1
Myanmar/Burma – 2
New Zealand – 1
Scotland – 1
Seychelles – 1
Sri Lanka – 1
Syria – 1
Qatar – 1
Vanuatu – 1

.
I’m loving seeing such a wide variety of countries on the list, but this of course makes it harder for a single place to edge ahead. In fact, we had a tie between Myanmar/Burma and Israel and the Palestinian Territories — two destinations that have had to go in the Nepalese hat for a draw before.

And here they go again….

September voting

This time Myanmar (or Burma – I’ll let you read this explanation at the BBC as to why there are two different names) makes it through. I am really looking forward to this one, as is one of our keenest Packabookers, Mona. Mona has made at least one trip to Myanmar, though I think it might be two, and I’m hoping she’ll be offering us some fabulous reading suggestions…

Moving on to U.S. states… here’s the table!

U.S. STATES
Alabama – 1
Delaware – 1
Florida – 4
Georgia – 1
Illinois – 1
Kansas – 1
Massachusetts – 2
Montana – 1
New Hampshire – 1
New York – 1
New Mexico – 1
Ohio – 1
South Dakota – 1
Vermont – 1
West Virginia – 1

.
As you can see we have an overwhelming winner for this one, so it’s time to pack those bags for Florida. A big thank you to Linda and Mandy for your votes this time round and to Kelly and Marla from a previous round.

And a clear winner too for our U.K. county…

UK COUNTIES
Cambridgeshire – 1
Cumbria – 1
Cornwall – 1
Derbyshire – 1
Devon – 2
Durham – 1
Kent – 2
London – 3
Manchester – 1
Northumberland – 1
Shropshire – 1
West Midlands – 1

.
It seems you are hankering for a city-break this time, with London narrowly defeating Kent and Devon. Choosing novels set in London is going to be an endless delight, as I suspect new books are being published in my home city faster than I can add them – so while I won’t be offering you every single London-set novel out there, I can guarantee a fabulous selection…

Right – loads of work to do to get started…

Apologies if you didn’t get your choices this time, but your votes stay on the table for the next round, so they will have a head start then.

See you soon…
