    February '10 Reading Poll

    In 2010, we are going back to "random" book nominations for our readings.

    Please nominate the novel you would like to read in February in this thread by December 31st.

    Please remember that:

    - Only those members with 50+ posts can nominate.

    - One nomination per member.

    - Only the first 10 nominations will be included in the poll.


    The Book Club readings are for those who would like to read and discuss books together with other members.

    If you are not able to take part or unwilling to (re)read your own nominations, please refrain from taking part in the process.


    *** This poll will be closed on January 31st. ***

    If you believe even a half of this post, you are severely mistaken.

    The Hours- Micheal Cunningham

    "The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function. One should, for example, be able to see that things are hopeless and yet be determined to make them otherwise."

    -- F. Scott Fitzgerald

    There are a few books nominated so far that I would like to read.

    Now for my own nomination:

    Invisible Man - Ralph Ellison

    Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. ~ Edgar Allan Poe

    An excellent choice, Dark Muse, I have to admit I'd enjoy reading that one again as much as my own nomination.

    That's all ten nominations in then, isn't it?
