I guess Issybird was right. Not only does it seem like we are headed for the continued 2 months of classics, we also have The MobileRead Literary Book Club
which offers classics year round.
Which is kind of funny seeing as so many were convinced we were goint to have a fantasy and science fiction overload.
There are 4 days of voting left. Classics will still have a home here (in either May or December), I just hope that we can broaden the appeal of the club a little more by adding one
new category to the list.
