Welcome back .

Only 3 chapters...??? It's on holiday that I usually catch up on my reading backlog - one book a day minimum .

I'm assuming the vote is closed now, and The Maltese Falcon is definitely the winner.

So, when's the discussion thread starting?

On another forum I am on, a book review thread gets a poll added to it and I think that's a good idea here too.

Outstanding
Above Average
Average
Below Average
Poor

Those are the options used. We can then find out how the majority of readers liked the book.

I have about 30-40 or so pages left and I'll be done with it by tomorrow sometime.

If nobody objects, I can create the thread with the poll.

I really like that idea Jon! I personally do not have a problem with your starting the discussion thread/poll - you've got my vote.

For choices I like:

Excellent
Very Good
Good
Poor
Awful
-----
or
-----
Very Good
Good
Okay
Bad
Awful


As for the book, I only have about 8 more pages to go so I'll be done soon.

Yes it was. That's why I mentioned it and as long as it wasn't created, I figured I'd toss in the idea of the poll.

I never got to this book at all. I should have waited until I was ready to read it before I purchased it.
