My intention is to read all the selections in both book clubs. As a practical matter, it won't happen. I've already blown it for 2012.

Sometimes I misjudge my commitments and my available time or the unexpected comes up in real life (Leaves of Grass). Sometimes I've already read the book, either too recently to make a re-read appealing (Black Rain) or I didn't like it enough the first time around (unfortunately, this may contraindicate Remains of the Day, depending on the time issue I mentioned first). Sometimes, in all honesty, I'd rather have my fingernails pulled (Unbroken--I suspect, given the example, that this might be an infelicitous metaphor.)

All this is my roundabout and rude way of saying that I agree with HIMS. Despite my best intentions, there are many factors that influence whether or not I'll participate in any given month. If ebook availability is such a factor for an otherwise interested participant, that's the way it goes.
