    I chose to make this poll public to make sure no aliases were voting, but I guess new board doesn't allow for that. But it doesn't look like that's a problem anyway.

    The Thousand Saints, Motherless Brooklyn, and Go Down, Moses all look good to me. I'm going to have to do more research...

    Is the print in the 143 page book relatively small or big? And if there a lot of picture pages, i might give the Feb Book Club a shot.
