    I'm going to have to sit this club out for now, but I voted for David Mitchell for all of you. I read The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet last summer and I loved it a lot. I'm currently reading Ghostwritten. Whenever you discuss Thousand Autumns and Blood Meridian, invite me to the thread. I read Blood Meridian last summer also.

    EDIT: This post went back in time. I was not the 2nd person to post in this thread. The lineup draws near and its powers are bending space and time.

    I voted for the ones I'd prefer and/or already own, but there's nothing on that list that I would be opposed to reading. Good list.

    Thanks for the poll, Courtney. I've tried to hang with the book club and ended up flaking once before - I'll try and be more steadfast this time around.

    Hmm. I might have to hold off if we do the last one - it's not in paperback yet and might be hard to find used/libraried.

    There's already some holds though, so yeah. Maybe not the best book if it's going to be difficult for people to find.

    It's on Amazon for as low as twelve bucks, but it's probably better if we don't pick one that people have to buy if they want to participate.

    Predictive text just tried to write "Amazorotor."

    I used to work at a music company. I was being paid while making at least 3/4ths of those posts. I win... Mostly because of that, but also because I don't wear wraparound sunglasses.
