I would still like to participate in this book club, and I hope we can start the August nominations soon.

As far as I'm concerned, any further discussion on the subject at this time is pointless. Would I have preferred a Nobel/Pulitzer Prize Winner or another Non-Fiction selection instead of two Classic months? You bet I would. But the majority has spoken, and my side was outvoted nearly two to one. Even if all the "swing" votes (those who voted "Either way is fine with me") were added to our total, we'd still have (as of this writing) only 46% of the vote.
I think it was important that this discussion took place, but now that it's clear that the majority wants two months of classics, I say to those who differ: Let it drop. Two months of classics aren't going to kill anyone, and no one is forced to participate in every month's discussion, although, to be sure, those of us who choose to may just learn something. Those older writers often had great insights into the human condition. There's a reason why the classics have staying power.
