From January 18 through February 15, 2012, the readers of the About.com GuideSite to Catholicism nominated their favorite Catholic books, blogs, websites, podcasts, iOS apps, radio shows, magazines, and newspapers, as well as their favorite Catholic Facebook pages and their favorite Catholics to follow on Twitter.
It took several days to tally over 1,200 nominations for hundreds of people and products across the ten categories, but the results are now in. On each of the following pages, you will find a description of one category and a brief description of each of the five nominees in that category (listed in alphabetical order). And near the bottom of each page, you will find a link to cast your vote in that category.
Voting opened at 12:00 A.M. EST on Wednesday, February 22, 2012, and will close at 11:59 P.M. EST on Wednesday, March 21, 2012. The winners will be announced on Friday, March 30, 2012, here on the About.com Catholicism GuideSite.

So without any further ado, let's introduce our finalists! First up: Best Catholic Book of 2011.
