  1. Thank you, John

  2. Not sure how, but I’ve read 4 of the 5 Morningstar Nominees already…only missing Doug’s from the list.

  3. Did you mean to include two different covers of Joe’s book and not include Patrick’s cover for the Legend Award?

    I read all five of the Morningstar books and they were all books that I thought should have made the shortlist. I have changed my mind three times on which one to vote for now. But, I guess I will make the decision in the next few days.

    Only read three of the Legend books. But; I have a clear favorite there. The man from Wisconsin.
