I'll begin with support for three classics-

1 to The Woman in White
1 to Historia Calamitatum
1 to The Hunchback of Notre-Dame

The list as a whole is great but many of them I want to research a little more and maybe read samples of before I make my voting decisions, however these three I'm already very aware of and know I'd like to support.

I actually remember back when I joined the general book club (before the lit club existed) and noticed The Woman in White had been picked a few months prior and thinking to myself that I wished I'd been there for it, and I still haven't got to reading it yet all these years later. So in a way if that's our selection it'll be a full circle for me from when I first came here, lol.

Historia Calamitatum has also been on my tbr for a long time and it's short and, um, not so sweet I guess. I also like that, looking at the stats on Dazrin's charts for the clubs, that if we choose it we'll set a new record for the oldest selection of any club here (the current record-holder is Dante's Inferno at a spry 1320 release date).

I loved Les Miserables when I read it, so I'd be up for another Hugo. The only adaptation I've seen of Hunchback is an old silent film version. It's also timely considering the recent fire at Notre Dame... which I have to wonder if that might have been part of the reason for the nomination. Either way that could add to a discussion. I've only ever been to Notre Dame once, when I was younger. We went on holiday to Paris from England and had a stop at the cathedral. I'd enjoy revisiting it by book.

It's going to take me some time to research too. A lot of great choices! A few that were already on my TBR.

11 votes to throw around but I'm not going to throw them very wide, just all at once . The Hunchback of Notre Dame gets only 2 votes, instead of more, because I have read it a couple of times before (long ago though).

The Sound and the Fury - 3

My Name is Red - 3

The Hunchback of Notre Dame - 2

Pnin - 2

The Woman in White - 1

A nomination is only allowed up to two votes per person, so here's the votes counted from your post:

The Sound and the Fury - 2

My Name is Red - 2

The Hunchback of Notre Dame - 2

Pnin - 2

The Woman in White - 1

This means that you didn't throw around all your 11 votes at once, but you did get nine of them in, and you still have two more to use if you'd like.


NOTE- Since you weren't aware of the vote limits per nomination and you inadvertently gave some too many and might not have wanted to give others the maximum allowed, if you'd like to alter your other votes you still can, but please let us know asap. Please don't edit your prior post but instead just post again clarifying what you'd like to do and your updated votes if any.

Thanks for the clarification.

For the sake of simplicity on my side I'll just go with the same books but with modified votes as follows:

The Sound and the Fury - 2

My Name is Red - 2

The Hunchback of Notre Dame - 2

Pnin - 2

The Woman in White - 2

This could be a tie month by the time everyone completes their votes. I'm going to start with the following votes:

The Woman in White - 1

Pnin by Vladimir Nabokov - 1

My Name is Red by Orhan Pamuk - 2

The Hunchback of Notre-Dame by Victor Hugo - 1

Thanks Sun Surfer, but I'll forgo using my eleventh vote (perhaps as self imposed punishment for not reading the instructions before voting ).

I'm going to add the following votes:

The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner - 1

The Emigrants by W.G. Sebald - 1

Historia Calamitatum by Pierre Abélard - 1

Nutshell by Ian McEwan - 1 (I almost nominated this one too since I have never read anything by McEwan and he is supposed to excel at this kind of category)

The Hunchback of Notre-Dame by Victor Hugo - 1 (for a total of 2 when combined with my previous post)

That leaves me one vote in reserve.

There’s a little less than half a day left to vote.


I’m still deciding on my final votes; I have a few more samples to look at that I want to get in if I can before I make up my mind.

2 to The Incarnations

This leaves me with two votes that I plan to cast after finishing up the previews.
