Um... sure. One other month we had several member read The Count of Monte Cristo.

Of course, you can start a thread about ANY book in the reading recommendations area that you want to.

Also, remember, December will be the Wild Card month... so all the non-winning ebooks for the year will be up for a vote again.

I got the ePub for my Sony reader for $8.40! So I am joining the club.

Any other Sony members interested should read this thread:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...=flash+forward

Offer started on 8 Oct and expires within a week.

It may not be the best price, but it sure beats paying the price @ the Sony store.

I just did the same. I read the excerpt at Sony and had to have it!!

That's great writing that can suck you in like that.

Finished Flashforward last week, read last month's BotM by Agatha Christie over the past few days. Have started and am 25% through with Neruomancer.

I plumb forgot about Verdant Skies. Maybe I'll pick that one up next. For those of you who are reading it or who have read it, how do you like it compared to Flashforward?

I've decided to read The Road next but Verdant Skies is probably up next.

I also decided to merge with the dark side and ordered a Kindle2.

Yeah, I figure I'd make sure I got the full deal, warranty, etc.

The main deciding factor was the number of books I keep finding at slightly better prices, or only available at Amazon. I guess that's the bottom line eh.
