Can we choose which book gets the amplified treatment?

It keeps updating, so you can post it! I just began The Martian!

Also, the highest rated book on my list in GR is a biography of Cleopatra  :o

My average rating is 4.0, but there's a lot of books I still haven't even rated.

Here's mine. 104 books. Almost 42,000 pages. I'm pretty proud of that. It was also a great year in terms of reading selection. My average rating was a 4.4.

3.7 average for me, but with just 42 books (will get to 44 by the end of the year, probably)... A bit disappointing year, usually I'm 60+. Will try to pick it up next year. :)

Here the list: https://www.goodreads.com/user/year_in_books/2015/7656537

50/52 so far, will definitely reach the goal of 52. My average rating is 3.2/5, but I generally give low grades anyway.

The bones of beasts and the bones of kings
Become dust in the wake of the hymn
Mighty kingdoms rise, but they all will fall
No more than a breath on the wind
