I'm about halfway through and am enjoying it, although I'm finding it hard to keep track of all of the people.

I need to spend a bit more time reading. I've too many books in the midst of being read. I plan on finishing all I have going before starting any new ones.

Murder --> criminal --> sentence --> words --> dictionary.

I'm a little late to the game this month, just having found out which book was Voted on this month (Too much Travelling, My body clock is still a little messed up )

Anyway, whicle not free, the price was pretty resonable, as I bough it from Fictionwise and with the Member Discount + the Impress the Boss Discount ( BN2009 ) which is valid through the 15th the damage came to around $7.11 (And I'm glad I stocked up on Micropay when the £ to $ rate was still in my favour)

Anyway, will start the Book later, as I'm heading to bed now, and need to be up in a couple of Hours.

The March vote is cosed. We are reading The Professor and the Mad Man this month.

But he can do as I did - read both. Seeing as I managed to finish The Chosen One early this month - and as it was so many interesting books nominated - I've started on "Blink!", which was my first choice anyway. So far I'm enjoying it big time...

Has the April book been decided? I'm a little late for March. I've looked around a bit, but haven't seen a definitive April book. 'Course, I'm sleep deprived and may have missed it...

When are we starting discussion? Are there any rules - or what do you usually do?

I will start the discussion thread for the March book on the 22nd of the month.

No rules... just chat.

BTW: To find the book club threads go to the Reading Recommendations Forum and filter on the Book Club prefix.
