    I think it is high time I read the Idiot, so that is what I voted for.

    I won't mind any of the books that are in the running... Been reading a lot of 20th C western literature lately so it will be a change of pace for me.

    I'll probably choose The Remains of the Day, we saw the film and liked it, the actors were good, too.

    one wonders where the heck are the people who nominated any particular book? I voted for mine...the remains of the day.

    can we count dreamwoven's mention in the thread and have a three-way tie?

    Remains of the Day is one of my most favourite books. Didn't vote for it because I've already read it many times, but I was kind of hoping it would get chosen.

    I am pretty sure I did cast a vote for The Remains Of The Day - on the 30th in fact, though we can't prove whose vote it was - but even so there is only 1 vote for it so I would argue strongly for the votes cast to reflect the outcome. That still leaves two books each with 2 votes. It is a shame so few voted but there it is. You could, of course have a second round of voting for the decider. Scheherazade?
