Lolita and the Grapes of Wrath. I read both, but am curious about your opinions.

I doubt the strategy will work though. We're probably still going to be reading and Lolita, and I'll still look forward to discussing it with everyone.
That was my thinking as well!

I've already put a copy on hold at the library too. The wait isn't too long.

My hold came through yesterday, so I've already started Lolita.

I'm very pleased at this result. I bought the ebook last week, as I didn't have a copy and it seemed the right thing to do, whether it won or not.

I for one am absolutely shocked at the winner! I never had any idea the entire time that that book might win.

The discussion thread will be up soon.

We are a bit tucked away here in our book club nook, but there's always next month if you want to drop by again and join in. And if you're interested in discussing Lolita, you can join us in the discussion thread that was just started here.
