Meager Puddle of Limelight Awards: Best Book Title – Final Round.

It’s time to select the winner of this year’s Meager Puddle of Limelight Award for Best Book Title.  

Because each round had a different total number of voters, after I sifted through the entries to find the eight which received the most actual votes, I adjusted the remaining results to reflect the percentage of votes received to votes cast in each round, then added those book titles which did proportionately the same or better than the first batch of finalists (ie: anything with a vote ratio of 13/51 or better).
