Spot on! We do like to say 'spot on'.

What happens if we end up with a tie??

It hasn't happened yet. (even though this question has been asked every month)

Ooh, there are several! I'm a huge GWTW fan (my darling eldest child got me the 75th anniversary GWTW DVD gift pack for Christmas); of the ones I've not yet read, I'm drawn to three in particular - Shadow Game sounds *fabulous*! Of the freebies, I think I might like It Happened in Egypt, and possibly His Robot Girlfriend.

I have to go back and read the summaries again before I vote...

C'mon, Jon. Surely you can get into a book about amorous androids!
I read this book and while it was sweet, it kind of had no plot. So I voted for Dead Until Dark

Gone With the Wind has taken an early lead. That would have made my late mother very happy. Gone With the Wind was her favorite movie, although her prediction that it would never appear on TV later showed her to be a less than infallible prophet.

I once took her to see the restored version when it played in a local theater several years ago, and I believe it did her heart good to see how the audience applauded when Clark Gable first appeared on the screen.

I've gone with Gone With The Wind (sorry).

I won't read it unless there is an incentive (or enforcement) like a bookclub.

Besides, I've had it listed as 'reading' on Goodreads since I joined and I want a change.

I don't feel bad about it, I just would like to be able to sit down and read it. But I only get a few dozen pages before I move to a different book.

Which is easy to do with over 2000 on shelves and I don't know how many on CD, DVD, etc

In Dead Until Dark Sookie begins a romantic entanglement with her vampire neighbor and is faced with a series of murders in town.

Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews. It's a romantic mystery / urban fantasy. It's actually written by married couple. It has an e-book version.
How did this sneak in? (BTW: Fun book ) Bold, my emphasis.
