Yes and no. There are so many books to read... I am not a re-reader.

Yes, it is available from BAEN for $5.00.

Does this mean the poll has to be scrapped and started over?

Yep... I saw that. Actually, it is part of the Baen free library. So, no charge. $5 is a suggested donation. Or maybe I am thinking of Time Traders that was in the free library. Man I'm OLD.

Why on Earth should it? There's certainly no requirement that an eBook be "free" to be included in the poll.

I didn't realize that A Mote in God's Eye was included in the poll. I knew it had gotten thirded so it should have been included. If it wasn't included, then I would think the poll would have had to have been started over. But as it's there, no harm, no foul.

It is the first book on the list in the poll.

It's alternate history SF, with the change point being the arrival of a section of North America from 2000 AD in the middle of Europe in 1631.
I subscribe this recommendation. I've been curious about this book, I think it's time I give it a try. My instinct says it has plenty of food for critique.

Sorry... nominations are closed. However, this book did make it into the voting. So, please find the MRBC January 09 poll thread.

Can this thread please be closed!

Thanks,
