Everybody and his mother-in-law are running polls these days, as year’s end edges near.

So for those who enjoy casting ballots and voicing your opinion, here’s a few places to make your voice heard.

GOODREADS is now on to the semifinals in its balloting for the best books of 2011. (A DANCE WITH DRAGONS is still contending, both in the fantasy category, and for book of the year).

Meanwhile, the PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARDS has opened balloting for their 2012 awards. HBO’s series GAME OF THRONES is contending in Best Cable Drama.

People’s Choice has a zillion categories, so you can also vote for your favorite network shows, movies, music, etc.

And over at ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, they’re picking the Entertainers of the Year, and it seems I am one of the candidates. (No one is more suprised at this than I am).

Vote early and often.

What good taste the folks at LIBRARY JOURNAL have.

They’ve included A DANCE WITH DRAGONS on their list of the Ten Best SF and fantasy books for 2011:

Jimmy Corey’s LEVIATHAN WAKES also made the list. Congrats to that scoundrel Jimmy,

I love librarians.
