January '09 Book Vote

Please vote for TWO selections only. There is no technical way to enforce this so it is on your honor.

I will set the poll to run for 5 days hence.

Woops... can someone edit this to say 09 instead of 08!!! And edit the poll title to say January 09. Thanks.

That's cool. I just don't know what to vote for this month. They all sound like such good books. And I haven't read any of them yet.

Vote for Time Machine! I really want to read it, I read Island of Dr. Moreau recently and now I want to read all of his stuff.

Of course you can read it even if it doesn't get the popular vote.

I wouldn't be surprised if The Time Machine wins out just by being a safe second choice for everyone. My #1 was The Time Traders.

I do think War of the Worlds would be a much better choice then The Time Machine.

I voted for 1632 and Little Fuzzy. 1632 because I've not yet read it and I've been meaning to and Little Fuzzy because I have read it but not for a very long time and I don't recall much about it except that it was a good read.
