    RJ - sorry :p Hey, at least you're getting it earlier than me!

    Loyal - don't like Gandalf?


    Rand - 'cause, duh. And I'm kinda surprised that Raistlin is winning - is that series gettin more popular than WoT or is it purely the characters? Also, RJ's going to be unhappy :p

    Sir Galahad

    The Lorax - first, this dude is awesome and I love this book. Second, I really didn't enjoy Cooku's Nest :p

    Abstain - both pretty cool dudes

    Not just Gandalf, but the whole series in all its forms. Terribly overrated, in my opinion.

    Nemo: for being Nemo
    Catherine: my favorite character is the book (yes, more than Heathcliff and the original Catherine)
    Dracula: classic
    Jon Snow: I think he's cool, and I'm more excited about his storyline than the others.

    Lancelot: I'm not a Lancelot fan, but I hate Stienbeck very much.

    Abstain: I'd vote for Roland on principle, but i haven't read it.

    Scheherazade: on principle

    Abstain: so as not to create a tie - Atticus is great, but Charlotte's Web was my favorite book in 1st grade.
