Black Rain. Call your relatives and get them to sign up as members and vote for Black Rain.
Or could I have four extra votes, please?

Lol. I'll get my two year old to sign up. No I wouldn't do that. He probably wouldn't discuss it unless we're okay with "dis car gaxy dis train."

Wow, only two books have fewer books than Storm Front. I would have put money on that being the winner this month.

Storm Front is on my TBR list, but Black Rain looks really interesting.

We only need a few more votes, maybe even just one, to make sure that A Game Of Thrones is in the final vote! It would be nice to read about an interesting fantasy land during January.

It would be, unfortunately, one wasn't nominated.

The funny thing about Storm Front is that I really wouldn't have minded reading it if it had ever won. It wouldn't ever have been my first choice but the club is all about trying things one wouldn't normally try. But the way it was repeatedly nominated over and over turned me away from it. I swear, I won't ever hear about bad weather moving in again without thinking of the book club!

I'm guessing no more than three or four more votes to come prior to the poll closing. Looks like it's a battle for the second place run-off spot.

I really like that we'll have two-tier voting this month. That means my early, uninspired vote won't be wasted after all! I'll get another chance to influence the result. Me like!

It took a 3 hour round trip and 2 used book stores, but I found a copy of The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, as well as a few other finds and future b-day gifts for my little ones. No luck on Black Rain, however - that will have to come from Amazon, should it win.
