Initial voting is complete and... we have a three-way tie between:

-Disgrace
-Owls Do Cry
-American Visa



Run-off voting is now open!

Voting will close exactly TWO DAYS from this post.

Each person has TWO votes to use.


If the run-off ends in a tie, the selection that received all its votes first will win.

They look like three excellent choices to me and I liked all their previews so I'll have a think on it, though I'd be about equally up for any of them. We had selections from all over the southern hemisphere this month and this final 3 really brings that home- one from South America, one from Africa and one from Oceania.

Also, and this is surprising to me, but checking Dazrin's stats, we've never had a selection from any of South Africa, New Zealand or Bolivia, so whichever we choose will be a first for that country!

Good choices. It’s great that we’ll get a selection from a new country. I don’t really have a strong preference too. I will need to read some samples next to see if that influences me.

I’m looking forward to reading this book and learning more about New Zealand. I found the book available to borrow at both Hoopla and Scribd.

No worries! I am finally getting back into my regular routine of reading again. I have really been in a reading slump with this lockdown and quarantine stuff. I thought I would read a lot more than usual, but it really takes an effort for the introvert spouse to keep the extrovert spouse entertained and sane during this period! I finished up over last weekend the book from last month, and I need to post my thoughts.
