* The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde
This one I haven't read, but the premise sounds hilarious; especially since no one seems to want to give a third to my nomination of And Another Thing. The Amazon reviews seem to be saying that Jasper Fforde is to literature as Douglas Adams is to science.
I concur that Jasper Fforde is to literature what Douglas Adams is to science, but while I was able to read and enjoy the latter, I just cannot get into the former - and boy have I tried.

Yes, I meant when do the nominations end. Does that mean tomorrow night at midnight, EST? After all, we are an international community!

Oh, Nominations........ when we get 10 choices or time expires. I guess if we are an international community then the end of the day would be the End of Days. And you know what that means, right?

I just downloaded a sample to check out. I'm a huge fan of Adam's Hitchhiker series, but I know nothing of Jasper Fforde except for the reviews I've read this week at Amazon.

Then I'll give my final nomination to Candide by Voltaire.

And that's my final answer.

Candide gets my third and final vote!
