Todsky, yes new books have been added, like 'Devil of a Bar and Pub' has been added. Please remember it was a decision myself and Peo took on to do this again this year, so it was just us two remembering what books came out, so as in the first post of this thread stated, just let me know if there is one we have missed you want to see added. As long as it was published this year, is Magic related, and not a re-print, then it will be added for voting. As for updating it, we like to keep on top of it and keep the list as up to date as possible.

Hansen, if you haven't read every book, then you obviously can't vote for every book. If you only bought one book, and you think it is the best read you have had this year and worthy of getting the book of 2007, then by all means vote for it.

I have only 9 of the books listed above, not including my own, because I buy the books I know I will be interested in at this time. So therfore, I disqualify myself from the other books, however, I wouldn't vote for a book I am not currently interested in anyway. So that cancels that out. So, out of the books I have, I vote which one I enjoyed most. Now, others will get books I don't have, as there are already votes for books I don't have, therefore they have a chance to vote for those books, thus making teh votign equal. I am a Close up Magician, so buy books on either Close up Magic, or books that I think would interest me. I wouldn't buy a book on Kids Magic or something, so therefore I wouldn't vote for it even if I bought it, as it is of no use to me...i hope this is making some sense...

Well if I had to vote I wouldn't! Since I do not have to I will give my honest opinion. This years book that gets my vote is definitly Sessions! I have been followin this book since I heard it was in the works ... now that it is here ... I can't put it down ... Mr. Givens has to have one of the best minds in magic ... especially cards! Josh was lucky to get his name on this book! I would have payed money to get my name on this book Smile Great read awesome magic and a impressive plot! Congrats I hope you win the vote! Does joel come on here? I want to meet that guy and Josh.

See ya real soon!

Both Josh and Joel come on here, but it isn't very often. It really is one of the best books to come out not only this year, but for the last few years. A very unusual, but clever way of writing a book that makes you have to read it and find it very hard to put it down

I probably shouldn't be voting, since I have only three books on the list. I know that everyone else has all of the books and is making a sober decision based on an analysis of all the books under consideration. Right? Otherwise this would just be a popularity contest, based more on sales than quality, and that would be pointless!

My vote: Magicians Cookbook Ltd

Session is a fun read and Behr's book is a great achievement, but I'm using tricks from the Cookbook. Best of Friends is next on my 'to buy' list, but it's rather pricey for me now.

For me, it has to be the thought provoking Mitox

The only book of all these that I've read is 'Card Dupery' by J.K. Hartman. So my vote goes to him. My book, 'Impossabilities' has sold 45 copies and to non-relatives (LOL) which isn't bad for an unannounced publication. Just thought I'd toss that in as well.

Magically, Jack

If a new guy can enter this thread, then my vote has to be for Mitox. Original, usable and entertaining mentalism. Well done, Phill Smith!

My vote: Cardini, The Suave Deceiver. I think it´s a book not only for this year, it´s a book for ever. Books about tricks have a more limited life.
