Mr Ripley's book cover wars final has now come to an end. After four exciting heats, we now have a worthy winner.......
As usual I would like to thank the many people who have supported the book cover wars. Although this idea is now in its sixth year I still find the whole process tremendously exciting! I hope that you too have had as much fun as I have - either as an observer or a contender.
Altogether 1,800 votes were cast over five weeks, which just highlights the interest that this competition generates. In the final there were 918 votes in total, amazing. Thank you all once again.
