    I'm afraid I might be a bit over optimistic on this one. Trying to finish Pygmalion and reading another book while starting school...goodness, if In Cold Blood wins I am going to want to read it so much grrr. Sorry, venting.

    I heard about 'In Cold Blood' and I want to read it.
    All the world's a stage,
    And all the men and women merely players:
    They have their exits and their entrances;
    And one man in his time plays many parts,
    His acts being seven ages.
    ~ William Shakespeare

    Though... Wondering... MaybeIn Cold Blood is not exactly what I need to read these days...

    *whines*

    Why is no one voting for Breakfast At Tiffany's??
    Maybe, they are thinking "Scher first".

    Hi everyone! I'm back and would like to participate in the club again.

    I've always wanted to read Capote. But I think I've got the same dillema as everyone else about the last three listed. I think I'm leaning toward The Grass Harp only because it has "harp" in the title.

    Vote for The Grass Harp

    Hi all. I am new to this club, but would like to vote for The Grass Harp. I've already read Breakfast at Tiffany's and am NOT interested in In Cold Blood. Thanks!

    I don't know which one to vote for but after reading the comments on it, The Grass Harp is beginning to look more and more tempting!

    But isn't Breakfast at Tiffany one of your favourite movies?

    Hmpf, why does anything like that never happen to me ?

    I've never read anything by Capote and would love to. However, I don't think that I'll have time before Feb 20, and unless his books are extraordinary short (are they ?), I don't think I'll be able to make it .

    Yes, they are very short books, Schoko; no more than 200 pages on average I think.

    So the book might turn out to be as good as the movie? It can't be too bad.
