Pitty but no nominations for Heinlein’s “Moon is a Harsh Mistress”, as it does not exist in eBook form.

For the same reason, no nomination for “To Sail Beyond the Sunset”, or even “The Man Who Sold The Moon” (the novella not the book), the one I should, for sure, nominate!

BTW: Is "The Mote In God's Eye" available as an ebook? I don't see it in the Kindles store or on Fictionwise?

Anyone know a good place for books abstracts so I can link the nomination list to them?

Here is a question. I know this is an e-book reader site, and everyone has one, however, must the books be in digital format?
Why can't we choose from a paper version also? Would dramatically increase selection, no?
So many wonderful books out there that aren't in digital format.

Just a thought.

Must they? That is up to all the members. But, I won't participate if I need to acquire a pbook. Also, since this is a book club on a site about reading ebooks it makes sense that ebook availability is paramount.

Of course, this is my opinion and would love to hear from others.

For the purposes of this book club I'd prefer the books to be available electronically as I'm more likely to read them!

Maybe we need a poll for it?

I'd like to keep it to available on ebook as well. No real good reason, I just think it is more fun that way.

Red Mars sounds really good... but also very long at 592 "pages". Hey, Mote is also listed at 592 pages. Time Machine lists as 128 pages.
