Gay Romance Challenge: 2011 Result

Last January I started my Gay Romance Challenge. It was an almost impossible task, and indeed I didn't manage to read all the books that appeared in the last twelve months in the Bestsellers List for Gay Romance on Amazon (here is the link to the list: Bestsellers in Gay Romance) but I read many of them. 67 out of 100 books! not bad, isn't it?

This is the 2011 result, and to determine the 100 books I simply considered all books that appeared at least once in the Bestsellers list and gave them a rate equal to their position; of course if a book appeared more than once they received a bonus point for each time they made the list and their position is the average position plus the bonus. So this is the final list (in bold the books I read with link to the review):
