Vote for our October books!

Welcome back to our book vote.  You will see some old favorites, along with a few new suggestions.  Remember this vote is only the first round of eliminations, the top three from each category will be voted on in person at our next book group meeting on September 29, 2011 at 6:00 pm.  If you have a particular book you want in that final vote, be sure to make a comment and let us know which one and why! 
~Jan and Sarah

The winners will be announced by Friday, Sept. 30th!

We thought you might like to see the actual tally of online votes, so we put the votes to the right of each cover.  The final two will be chosen at the meeting.

  1. Great selection! Envy was a really good book, the man was somewhat of a jerk but as you read the story you will understand why. I have heard really good things about The History of the Pink Carnation, and the JD Robb series is really good as well.

  2. Some of my all time favorite characters are in the Hallows Series by Kim Harrison. Soulless also looks interesting. I am curious to know what you think about it after you read it.

    One of the books in the In Death series was described as "Law & Order: SVU -- in the future". That's definitely something I want to try.

    Just about everyone I know who has read Kim Harrison's series has enjoyed it, which is saying a lot when you consider that it encompasses a good number of books.

    I flipped through a copy of the second book in Gail Carriger's series (the bookstore didn't have the first one in stock), and it looked like a cross between Amanda Quick's Arcane Society and Harrison's Hallows Series, with steampunk thrown in. I'd call that a pretty good combo (and I get a kick out of something called the Parasol Protectorate). The only "problem" is that there might not be enough copies for a group read. Of the nine copies in Mainecat, two are local use only, one is overdue, and only two are available at the time of this comment. Perhaps when BPL has the budget to buy a few copies?...

  4. As of today, Soulless is in the lead for votes. We did order two copies, and one copy of each book in the rest of the series. If it continues to stay in the lead by next week we will find a way to get a few more copies. :o)
