How about August 1st? That would give us a month to read it, and The Wizard of Oz, too, if anyone wants to compare the versions.
I'm in!

Who voted for something other then what you would have voted for because you thought your vote for what you really wanted would have been a wasted vote?

Who waits to vote to see what close and then votes for one of those?

If anyone can honestly say yes to either question, then we NEED a blind vote to make this fair.

Jon...Bob has already told us that he has no problem doing a blind vote, but that the software doesn't support it (as yet). He also offered to talk to the powers that be, to see if it could become an option. I know you want someone to do it manually, but obviously no one is willing or able to take on that responsibility. I am a SAHM (during the summer anyway) but I still wouldn't want to be in charge of keeping a tally; goodness forbid there is a miscount somehow, with neither a fail-safe nor back up.
You need to back off. There are people, like myself, who a agree with the idea, but you have to accept that it is not a possibility at this particular moment in time.

Sounds good to me too! There is the lull at the end of the month to take advantage of.

Happy reading, everyone!

I know this is a busy month what with the selection itself and some reading Wicked and Wizard of Oz, but is anyone else interested in reading Game of Thrones this month? If no one else is, that's definitely understandable with all the choices, but already having it on my to-read list, then having fantasy as a category this month and seeing it do so well in the voting is really making me want to go ahead and read it now.

Sounds good. I'll mark it on my calendar and start a thread then. I just bought the Wizard of Oz also.

OK - if Wicked is the choice, I may try to squeeze that in if I can to have a chat with you all (I own the paperback already just never read it). I'll try to join in on Name of the Wind as well but won't reread at this stage.

Got Name of the Wind on my ereader... will start tonight, when I get home from work. Happy reading, everyone!

I plan on reading Game of Thrones soon as well, but I doubt I'll get to it this month. Wicked... eventually.

I might not get a chance to reread Game of Thrones this month, but I would be interesting in participating in a discussion on it.

Started reading it last night. Got about one hundred pages into it.... so far, I am really glad it was voted. I REALLY want to say more, but I am trying to contain myself...

NO, but you said enough to make me totally want to start reading it right now... But I'm right in the middle of _The Gods Themselves_.
