Presti, living in the good ole US of A you know you do not need to be informed to render an opinion.
Vote or don't vote, it is up to you, but I think that everyone that does vote should read whatever is selected and anyone that does not vote is still welcome to read the selection and participate. I am in a book review club on a crime author's forum. In that one we take turns choosing a selection. No voting. The last two have been totally off genre. Driving me nuts!
