    I would like to second Koko, and nominate Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman (the apocalypse has never been so funny!).

    Only a few days left!!! We start voting next Tuesday!

    please go over the list and see what you've missed!!!

    Bears, for example, only just remembered that they haven't nominated one of their favorites ever, namely,

    The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

    Ask not what bears can do for you, but what you can do for bears. (razz)

    Another vote for "Murder on the Orient Express" if I may
    The Houston Astros cheated Major League Baseball from 2017-18!!!!

    They cheated their way to a couple of League Championships & a World Series!!!!

    Is that how we teach our kids to play the game now?????

    How many can I second or third?
    It'll take a lot more than words and guns,
    A whole lot more than riches and muscle.

    The hands of the many must join as one.
    And together we'll cross the river.
