I'm thinking that by the end of 2012, people will have a better idea of what they want concerning hidden/viewable and two-tiered voting. I didn't get my way, either. Democracy is messy.

Democracy is democracy. I choose to make suggestions on the process and if people like it they may vote on it or they won't or they'll just ignore it. When a month comes by that I like the genre I'll nominate something and vote for what I want to most read at this time. If something wins that I don't want to read, I won't read it. If I was marginally interested, the voters might sway me to read it or they might not.

I might help some nominations get over the line and then back away from the circus until it's time to actually read something.

I've noticed the discussion threads are usually without drama, so if I'm careful I can just have fun discussing books with other readers.

Have you considered this approach? It's my new year's resolution so I can't tell you if it's been a huge improvement, but it seems plausible that the whole process will become enjoyable again if you try this strategy.
I could do that but I rarely even look in the discussion thread because I am no good at that aspect. My opinions of books are limited to "I liked it" or "I didn't like it" I just can't wrap my head around how to review a book. If you were to ask why I liked a book the only answer the pops into my head is "I liked that I enjoyed it..."

So for me the nominating and voting was the fun part and the reason I participated, I slowly realized the nominating and voting was mostly just arguing and complaining usually always started by one individual and even with hidden voting now that individual still just complains. I did read a Christmas carol this week, though it had nothing to do with the book club, just seemed like a good book to read around the holidays and I had never read it.
