Not so quick, you two. The Odyssey is only 26 votes shy of a win! Besides, I never got an answer on my question of whether it's OK to do a write-in for all six volumes of The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire!
Let me read it first and I'll let you know.

Sure... just bring the poll up and write on it with a sharpie or other indelible marker what you would vote for. If it gets the most votes it will be official.

This will mesh well with my schedule. I should be done with the Count of Monte Cristo soon... I had no idea it was such a long book... this is like the 4th LONG book I have read in a row. The Pillars of the Earth, World Without End, The Stand and now the Count...

But, once it's done I feel my next read will be Mr. Verne's work.

I know that it is the wrong thread, but there there was a sneaky job ... You were right, as always, it is the difference, which at the first variation measures the volume. Of course it is easier and more proficient, as you say to wing it.

I'm feeling reasonably confident at this point that "The Mysterious Island" has a good chance of winning the poll.

You can read Mr Twisty as well! If you are quick you can get it read before the poll closes.

I downloaded most of them, but I think Mysterious Island will be the first to get read.

I'm sure I will. I love Verne as well and have not read either, sad to say.
