    I wasn't suggesting a change to the thread so much as having a thread for each book club selection. Otherwise, this one book club thread will get very long and it will be difficult to know where to jump in and for new people to figure out what is going on. It would be an easy way of letting book club members know what the next book is and when the discussion is going to begin to happen if it is the title of a thread. Plus, it is easier to find something if the threads don't get too long.

    May even need a book club selection thread, or it could just be in this thread -- or it is just done by the leader Annarhr. I love to hear about good book suggestions.

    By the way, congratulations on the upcoming new edition -- from a NW alum.

    I figured I would make a thread for each of the suggested books, because there must be enough interest in the books for them to be suggested...

    I'll be sure to check out the selected books to see if I'm interested in reading the books. leader - anna!

    When is the discussion again?? Also, maybe we should start deciding on another book soon so everyone can get it and read it with enough time to finish it.

    The discussion is July 8th.

    Should we use the same list to vote for the next book or should we read the book with the second most votes? I think that was the Poisonwood Bible.

    I believe we should start a new list. I don't doubt that some books from the old list will appear on the new one, anyway.

    Wait, just post the old list and we'll add to it and vote.

    Here is the last tally of votes when we first started the club. I excluded "The Lovely Bones" because we've already read it.

    6 votes - Barbara Kingsolver "The Poisonwood Bible"

    4 votes - Jonathan Coleman - "Exit the Rainmaker"

    2 votes - John Irving - "A Prayer for Owen Meany"

    1 vote - Russell Banks - "Rule of the Bone"
    1 vote - Anna Quindlen - "Black and Blue"
    1 vote - Jose Saramago - "Blindness"

    ixcrisxi, I don't mind any read. As long it is interesting enough to make me turn every page of the book.
