Spinnenmonat Vote • August 2017

Help us select what the MR Literary Club will read in August 2017!*

The options this month are courtesy of our rotating nominator, Spinnenmonat.


Voting will run for four days. The vote will close exactly four days from this post; even if the final tally doesn't occur immediately after voting closes, no votes made after that time will count.

Votes will be made by post. Each person has NINE votes to use.

You may give each nominee one or two (or no) votes. You may vote all at once in one post or vote in separate posts at different times, so long as you have more votes remaining to cast. You may use any number of your possible votes up to the maximum. Any extraneous votes per person (past their maximum or more than two for one nominee) won't count. Votes cannot be changed once they are cast.

The rotating nominator may not vote. Once voting is complete, the count will be tallied and a winner declared. In the event of a tie, there will be a one-day run-off vote, also in this thread. If the run-off also ends in a tie, then the tie will be resolved by the nominator.

We hope that you will read the selection with the club and join in the discussion.


Voting is now closed.

Hi everyone, as issybird mentioned I'm a bit under the weather so she's been kind enough to help this month.

It's a great selection of books this month and so I give one vote to everything but the Mann.

Thanks, issybird! It's on the homepage too.

Excellent list, Spinnenmonat! I am going to have to do some research to make a decision.

I hope you feel better soon, sun surfer!
