We have 570 books submitted and only 107 will pass to Phase 3, almost 20%. To determine this the Jury worked along with the popularity contest, the judges candidated books on their own, without knowing the nominations of the other judges... sometime the nominations were similar, sometime not, only the books with more nomination are the Jury's Choices, but I think it's right to list the books who were candidated by the Jury, they are not in Phase 3, but almost.
