And with that, initial voting is complete and we have a three-way tie! This means we'll have a run-off between:

-The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry
-The People in the Trees
-Green Mansions


This being the first month of our refresh and under the circumstances, this run-off will last two days instead of the customary one.

Voting will close exactly TWO DAYS from this post.

Each person has TWO votes to use.

Please refer to the first post for all other information, and any questions feel free to ask.

To clarify, can we still give 2 votes to a single item of the 3 books in the list?

For example we could vote

A 2, B 0, C 0

Or,

A 1, B 1, C 0

Or, if you don’t want to use 2 votes,

A 1, B 0, C 0

I’ll start with one vote for The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry and mull over what to do with my other.

I was waiting to see if anyone else voted. If I give one vote each, then there will still be a tie! So, I will give 1 vote to Green Mansions since it was the book in the first poll that seemed to appeal to everyone.

In truth, I was holding out because I didn't want to be the deciding vote as a newbie. But I am glad for Green Mansions as I would have voted for that .

Manybooks has the epub here and Librivox has a recording by Mark Smith (who is pretty decent) here.

I’d have to look up what our run off tie breaker is. If I’m not mistaken I think it’s now the first book to receive all its votes... so if you voted for both and no other votes were cast then it would depend on how you’d listed your votes!

I was leaning toward The Unlikely Pilgrimage mainly because it seems a little more different than the kind of selections we’ve had in the past (you did much better than me with that this month!) so apropos for our first month with the refresh and for New Beginnings, but of course I’ll be quite happy with either of the others too; they also fit well and I did nominate them after all.

Don’t let that hold you back! We love newbies or drop-ins to have as big a say as they can, including being the deciding vote, as long as they plan to participate in the discussion. We’re a small club so it’s inevitable that anyone who nominates or votes can wield a large influence on the results.

Run off voting is over and the winner is Green Mansions! I’m looking forward to it.

Well, I’m reading both! I am 20% through The Unlikely Pilgrimage. It is different than what we’ve read before, but I think Green Mansions might lead to better discussion material. I’m looking forward to it too!

Green Mansions was made into a movie in 1959 starring Anthony Perkins and Audrey Hepburn.
