I admit to not having voted yet.
But I did print out all stories and brought the pack on holidays with me ;D

I still have to vote, too. Maybe I should wait until April 30 to cast the vote in case it turns the tides.

Haven't voted yet, school holidays again, but will before it closes.

I've read them all but haven't been able to narrow my vote down enough to actually cast a vote.

Got two I definitely want to vote for. Can't quite nail a third.

Voted. It was kinda hard this month. I think the theme was great, but reading through the stories made me overdose a bit.

That's why I only read 2-3 in a row.
No overdose.

I voted on the weekend. It was down to eenie meenie miny mo for the third vote. As for overdose, maybe, but there's one that's still creeping me out and I read it five days ago. Every night now, it's pitch black in my room and I remember it. Won't get that out of my head for weeks!

Voted.  Basically went with the ones that after a few days of reading that stuck with me and that I remembered.

i'm glad i'm not the only one who has that as a serious component to my voting.

It's usually my main criteria but with a theme like this I give it more weight than I normally would.
