While Fareheit 451 is a great book, I've read it.

Any of the others is fine, since I have no clue what they are about

Out of the choices I think I, Lucifer looks like it would be the best for a book club reading. Also, if Kushiel's Dart wins, would we read the other books next?

depends on how this goes. if it's a big flop, I'll probably let it die. but if it works out, I'll prob suggest #2 from the list, if (as it appears) there's 2 or 3 top books from this, then call another vote after that.

And I put it WAY in the lead. I've been wanting to read that!

Unfortunately, I may have to beg out for this month and join next month. I'm currently making my way through <i>Harry Potter and the Jolly Great Novel of Tediousness</i>.

Good point. Don't have an answer though.

I'm currently reading this one and it's very very good. Don't know how I'll squeeze in another if it's not picked since I'm reading Kushiel's Dart at work, and American Gods at home, but I think I can manage.

ah, sorry, misread the question about the sequels. let's try to answer that again... if it wins, and if we like it, and if we want to read the remaining books... we will. if not, then we won't.

::cheers grins at her great solution ::

How cool, it's a sticky. Given the down time between posts since it takes time to read a book, it's a good idea.

I'm in, cheers.

When are you going to call this one voted out and get us to reading? I'm only reading two books at once right now, and I'd like the third to be fror the bookgroup.

Kadath: read the first post. Things are still shiftin' so I'm gonna leave it till it closes.

gangle: no, not too late at all. and, no, you can't just download books. that's like pirating music. the author don't get his kickback. and, unlike music, in books the author gets a kickback PER BOOK so it's well worth supporting them.

and, as I hit submit, I remember about those e-book thingys... i don't know a thing about those, so if that's what you're talking about, ignore previous paragraph.

ok boys and girls, voting is officially closed!! I, Lucifer wins by a landslide! Hit the bookstores, the libraries, or the internet, we'll convene back here (new thread, but same spot) in as long as it takes for people to get books, and we'll go from there!
