    It's not the end of the world Anna, you can take J.T. off, I'm just stubborn when it comes to books I really love - but ya'll will miss out on a really good book that could have still been read over a period of time (say 50 pages a week) and discussed. Rule of the Bone is an excellent book, probably more mainstream than Sarah, and Banks is well known (he wrote Affliction, The Continental Divide, The Sweet Hereafter) so he would appeal to more people.

    If I vote for two (minus Leroy) it'd be Banks and Coleman. I'm tempted to vote for Sebold just so I can debate it's merits, but I'm sure it'll get enough votes on it's own.
    I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star in somebody else's eyes... but why... why... why can't it be me?

    I won't vote, because I really don't have a preference. Just thought I'd let y'all know that I am interested in the book club too.
    To be a star: you must shine your own light; follow your own path; and don't be afraid of the darkness, for that's where stars shine brightest.

    I vote for Exit the Rainmaker and The Lovely Bones. They both sound really good.

    I live in the boonies, btw, how hard will these be to get? I already checked locally for Lovely Bones and couldn't find it. If I ordered one of them online, does anyone know how long it would take to get?
