    Nominations are indeed accepted!
    however there seems to be very little activity
    Hey Jean, do you think we can get an announcement at the top of the page scrolling marquee?

    The more I look over this list, the more I want to read Catch-22 and The Great & Secret Show. Some good ones on this list.

    I know I haven't been in here much yet, but I'd third The Turn of the Screw.

    I also agree that it might be interesting to discuss The Great & Secret Show.

    Just a thought, but how about Under the Dome, as I will have no interest in reading anything else untill I am done with that, and it would be a shame to miss the opportunity to all experience a King book (a good one I expect/hope) together for the first time.

    I think it will be done in Cara Laughs, I am sure Under the Dome will be the Book of the Month as soon as it is out.

    Only I have no idea where I could take it... not until I go to France in April, but even then it will be hardback, so I won't be able to buy it...

    If someone wishes to take the reigns of this, feel free to. I don't have the patience or attention span to keep it running.

    computer skills don't have anything to do with it. I'll make all the polls for you, or anything else you might need.

    Can we just set up a poll to pick the next book?
    I'd offer to take over, but honestly I'll only be participating if it's a book that interests me. Could we just have the person that nominated the book take over the discussion if their book wins?
    Only the gentle are ever really strong.
