...and WOW! A Game of Thrones is 700 pages... a might less than LotR at 1200 pages of course.

so... I might be voting by the process of elimination here.

If it's not available as an eBook, does this mean the vote has to be canceled and the nomination back on till we get one more third?

Hmm... good question... but I didn't use my nominations so I would just pick one of those that had two noms already. However, I really loath to change the poll after people start voting.

It is an eBook. http://www.webscription.net/p-100-th...senarrion.aspx But we have a problem. The Deed of Paksenarrion is not a single book but an omnibus. So it doesn't count. The listing and the people who seconded/thirded it may not know it's an invalid nomination.

Deed of Paksenarrion
1. The Sheepfarmer's Daughter (1988)
2. Divided Allegiance (1988)
3. Oath of Gold (1988)
The Deed of Paksenarrion (omnibus) (1992)

I found it on Amazon for the Kindle:
http://www.amazon.com/The-Deed-of-Pa...A12MGAGPLUJEQK
It says, though, that the title will be released on July 1st.

It is on Baen to be read online:
http://www.webscription.net/chapters...0743471601.htm

JSWolf was faster

Why don't we just say Book One? I will amend it in the poll.

Those that want to read on can.

Game of Thrones. It's my husband's favorite series. Also, HBO is filming the show at the end of this month...

That works. Good idea. By the way, can you take away the vote for it since it was voted on before it was fixed?

Jon, has there every been a monthly book poll where you didn't object to something?

Also do you ever actually read the winning book?

Curious minds are asking?

I can change the vote numbers. But, I can't give that person their vote back. I don't see why they wouldn't still want to vote for it.

The Princess Bride is excellent. I'm currently in the middle of rereading it. So I voted for it. The Hobbit is my next choice.

Maybe that person doesn't want to read it knowing it's a trilogy instead of just a stand alone book.

Ok... so I have narrowed it to three...

The Deed of Paksenarrion, His Magesty's Dragon and American Gods.

I'm leaning towards the first since it is available DRM free from webscriptions. But, I did just "buy" His Magesty's dragon for free from the Kindle store.

Decisions, decisions... I'm hoping for an excellent book this month. The last two month's were a bit disappointing.
