RITA Reading

What do the RITA nominations mean to you? I'll be honest, I had no idea they existed three years ago. Now, I love hearing who made the cut. Of course, that could be because now I'm crossing my fingers that I know someone...

Anyway...do you pick up a book just because it was nominated? Do you read all the books in one category to see if you can predict who'll win? I'm working my way through two categories, contemporary series and single title. Which have you read?

WTF is up with the titles of M&B Modern Extra is the States? The Mile High Club is a MUCH better title.

As far as RITA nom's...I usually find new-to-me-authors this way. Of the current ST list, I've already read about half. On the Series list, slightly less than half.
