I use a measure I termed 'Average Vote Rank' to assign a measure to a books "belovedness" regardless to how many votes it received. A book which only receives first place votes will have an average vote rank of 1, and a book with only tenth place votes (regardless of how many 10th place votes) will have an average vote rank of 10. Where the Red Fern Grows has an Average Vote Rank of 2.82 which is the lowest of any book in the top 100. Charlotte's Web the #1 book has an Average Vote Rank of 3.56 (the 7th best average rank on the list).
