I've already started reading Risen by Jan Strnad and so far it's every bit as great as I hoped, but this thread had stirred my interest in The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson as well. I know I haven't read it, but I can't recall if I listened to it as an audiobook years ago or not, although I believe I did. I have seen the silent film version, and may even have a copy in in my video collection somewhere. I'll have to download a copy of Dr. Jekyll and put in in my To Be Read collection on my Kindle.

Fortunately, =X= uploaded a copy to MobileRead.

A little-known fact about Jan Strnad: his groundbreaking research in an arcane field led to the cure of an agonizing, ultimately fatal disease so rare it had no name.

In a snowstorm.

Bought Risen yesterday.
So far, a great read.

Congrat to the author for giving us a good (drm free) book for 3 bucks !

Nope, not me. I've learned my lesson about reading them too early. The last couple of times I read the chosen selection right after it was elected and I found I forgot too many of the finer points by the time the official discussion starts several weeks later. I'll start mid-month.

Of course, I have a mind like leaky pipe. You smarter folk might get away with it.

LOL !

Not an issue for me. Not that I'm smarter than you.
It's just that I lack the vocabulary to discuss the book later.
But I'll read you guys...

recluse, the smilies are a definite plus to your posts.

I have it also, and I am going to try to get to it this month.

Yes, do tell. I don't scare easily and am looking for something truly terrifying.

Great book!

If you like it, you might also enjoy "The Monk" by Matthew Lewis.

Excellent book!
One of my favorites!

By the way, this list is not official. I may do some substitutions before September 30th.
