No, there wasn't really a chance of that... even if it wasn't available as an ebook... I really would probably not have changed the poll and disenfranchised the nominations and votes it has received.



Is that available as an ebook?

You can buy it for your computer, as I did for several years before the Wikipedia was available at a better price (free). And you can copy and paste the articles, so it should be a simple matter for folks to pay the bucks, copy everything to their word processor article at a time, and feed it to calibre for conversion to a form suitable for their readers. If we all download the Britannica and start start now, we should be finished with our individual projects and ready to discuss it oh, say ... around 2099.

Just remember, if you do vote for The Lord of the Rings, you who voted will have to read it all before the discussion starts. So that means, all the other books you want to read will have to wait a good long time.

Yes, it does. But I am just warning people since it is a LONG read regardless.

I'd like to re-read it again (think I've read it twice...maybe only once though)....but not for a monthly selection.

Last time I read The Lord of the Rings was before I saw the movies so I would be updated on the books again.

Currently re-reading LOTR for the first time in *YEARS*. Saw the movies and am discovering all the parts that were changed. It was a struggle the first time through, but I'm thoroughly enjoying this time.

I hope it wins since I'd like to discuss it (and re-read it, too). But the second runner-up is my other favourite - so I'm good either way I think
