    Well...do I pull the trigger and get "Midnight's Children" or do I wait for a miraculous, last minute dog pile on "The Old Devils"?

    Well, seeing as the voting should be locked as it's past the end date, I'd play it safe and get a copy of MC.

    Yes, it says the poll is closed. I myself have already started reading MC

    I need to finish Jane Eyre, which will take about a week, then on to MC. I'm looking forward to it and.a good discussion.

    I'll need to refresh my mind as to the first third. I like his narrative style. It makes you work.

    Just purchased and now realize this will be a challenge to finish this month at 500+ pages.
    So be it, I'm underway.

    Count me in I'm having a week of reading shorter books (I just finished Genji - it's a monster!) but will start Midnight's Children next week.
