You know what happened to us yesterday? The revised Category K list initially included Brindisi Bedfellows. So for a few brief moments, we were finalists, and I had to think about what that really means--what the EPPIEs really mean. I was excited and flattered, and annoyed when the list was revised once again, and we weren't on it. It was difficult to get too worked up about it, though, because I was working on an essay that was due this afternoon.
I didn't enter the EPPIEs myself this year. Vivien can enter all the Jamie Craig books she wants, but I am more or less removed from the situation. Did you enter? If so, why? What were the perceived or known benefits? Did you final? If not, will you be entering again next year?
