    In Cold Blood seems like the best choice, if you ask me...

    That's a hard one, there three books which I would like to read:
    - The life of Pi (already started it )
    - The Cantebury Tales
    - Love in the time of cholera

    Unfortunately, voting on three isn't possible.
    On the other hand, allthough I like reading a book this way and vote for one of these three, I don't have the time in June to read or share my opinion about the book, because of being abroard for 3,5 months by then.

    So I won't vote and influence the outcome, but I've given some advice in what to choose

    Oh Erna, if you voted for Life of Pi you could finish it before June actually... means you wouldn't have to read anything in June and only joined the conversation thread and the live chat if it shall win or you shall so desire

    Maybe I should do that. But the chance that I can follow discussions is also small, because I'm going to Suriname (South-America) and having computers at home is less normal than it is here.

    I'll see what I'm going to do, time enough left to vote

    Thanks for your welcome!

    Yep, there's almost a month left to decide what to vote for or IF to vote at all

    You can vote (or not), read the book (or not) and join the discussion/live chat (or not) , there's nothing you HAVE to do

    *edit* Oh I forgot to meantion... you can also nominate (or not ) a book... if you can get into the first ten nominations or if someone cancels theirs nomination you could get your book into the voting still

    Though I never seem to keep up with you guys...never seem to really read what is meant to be read or end up reading it like a month afterwards...I do enjoy influencing the poll.

    I voted Crime and Punishment. True, I don't have it, and I don't generally like reading books online (for reference, sometimes...that's why I find the Online Literature Network so useful...especially the forums! )................but all the same......I do happen to have The Idiot, would that do?

    Another tie, I see!

    *rubs hands excitedly*

    Another coin toss for me?? If it is a 2+ way tie, I will be rolling the dice!



    Reading Shogun might be interesting as well... I think in the beginning of 1980s, there was a TV show starring Richard Chamberlain. I remember my mother and her friends watching it addictively, reading the book and discussing it forever.

    Come and post whenever you read them, Miss D. The threads are open indefinetely


    Papaya, you know you will give in and vote soon!

    And wow! I didn't know that Shogun is 1210 pages. If it wins, we will read it in two months, I guess...
