Sigh. I chose to interpret it as relating to nominations only, especially since discussion of that particular topic is done. Anyone with comments along those lines can PM me.

But since it's been started, I'll comment that a book club is participatory and not a performance, which seems self-evident to me. Anyone who wants to read along obviously can and welcome, but it's going to be those who'll discuss the book who get to choose it. Carry voting without discussing to its logical extreme and you've got a popularity poll and no discussion at all. Moreover, anyone who doesn't want to commit to the discussion is free to nominate books and influence the outcome at that stage.

Time to put the wiggly worms back in the can. No more comments, please. People are welcome to PM me if they have something to say.

Welcome, Alex! Always good to have new recruits.

Please let us know which sources of books you use -- we currently try to watch for availability issues in Australia, the US, Canada and the UK. But we can extend that if we need to.

Thank you! I'm a member at the Amsterdam library. They've got a big selection, but you can also request books from other libraries and they'll have it shipped over. You can also borrow e-books which I've been doing since getting an ereader. There are also quite a few second-hand book stores to find rarer books.
