Don't take the bait HIMS, we've had the "too many vs too few" classics argument every month for at least the last 4 months if not longer. Club votes dictated that the general consensus was to keep things as they are. So here we are.

I thought that I would be skipping October (Horror) and December (Classic #2), while participating in November (Science Fiction), but the complete opposite has happened.

Oy. My comment was tongue in cheek. No baiting. A joke.

Lighten up?

No, I knew it was tongue in cheek, but I thought better of going down that path.
Ditto. It is not hard to picture the joke turning into another full fledged conversation. We've been there, done that, and got the t-shirt.

- - - - - -

Just 4 more nominations needed so we can get to voting.

Step right up ladies and gentlemen, you get 3 shots. Come one, come all to the Greatest Book Club on Earth!

Right off the bat I see that Sun Surfer and GA Russell have two more opportunities.

Then, why not roll your eyes at a (bad) joke, chalk it up to my bad taste, and ignore it? Why initiate and perpetuate a conversation you claim you don't want to have? seriously, Nyssa! It would have been passed over and forgotten by now.

To state that we've already had the conversation and to, hopefully, discourage its continuation. I'm sorry if you've chosen to take offense. You could do to take your own advice.

Anyway, I've made my 3 nominations, so I will see you all in the voting thread when its up.

Have a wonderful day!

I believe that Heart of Darkness should now be fully nominated with my 3rd of it, no? That makes 8 books fully nominated I do believe.

Gotcha. Starting a conversation to discourage one.

I'm not offended, but that's the apology that isn't, so why say it?

Finally, I wasn't advising you so much as pointing out the disparity between your stated aims and your actions.

I honestly can't see how anyone could take my comment as anything other than a joke. My fault is that I didn't realize that the issue still rankled for some.

The mods must've missed your vote, I think.

I'll nominate A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

I saw HarryT's post about a new omnibus edition, so it seems like a good time to start reading Sherlock Holmes.

Isn't part of your job here to remove books of pedophilia from the nominations?

I think we need NO classics months at all. Especially if some out here think a book of pedophilia is a classic. It's just a book of pedophilia and rape. Yes, you know how you are who helped give it three nods. I'm ashamed of the three of you. You should be ashamed of yourselves.
