I agree. I'm leaning toward Steve's newest or The Moon and the Sun.

Seriously.

I watch the local news, BBC America news, some History, Science, and Discovery channel shows almost all via Tivo. So yes I was being sarcastic.

But I really don't care much for TV in general.

My vote goes for Soul Identity...having seconded it's nomination and intending to read it win or lose.

Tide Mill was my first eBook, liked it but not enough to reread. Not being a SciFi/Fantasy fan I won't be spending 10bucks on Flash Forward so if either wins will be skipping October's read.

Vote for Verdant Skies! It is the best book I've read all year! I like Rob a lot and enjoyed Flash Forward, but Verdant Skies TOTALLY ROCKS!!!!

But that's just my opinion...

It does sound good. Personally I'll buy and read FF if that's what wins, but it's about 4th for me on what's up for voting.

Do you work for Tivo? Gah that's one of my most favorite things I own! I could be completely desititute and I'd be clutching that thing so tight...and yes I pretty much pay $15 a month to have the little Tivo guy record things it thinks I *might* like. Ahhh Tivo.

Anyway I'm not sure what I'm going to vote for. I've already read Soul Identity, which I loved. I haven't read one of Steve Jordan's books yet and I really want to, but I also really want to read The Tide Mill. I think I'll sleep on this.

Not Tivo, but one of the billing companies that handles Dish, Comcast, AT&T Broadband, and many others

We mail the invoices and track payments, etc. etc.

I don't. I hate distracting animated gifs in avatars. It would be a fine avatar without the animation.
