1st Online Book Group Selection

Unfortunately, LJ's polling system has a limit on the number of possible answers for each poll question, and we have more book possibilities than that limit. So I think the next simplest way to do this is for all of you who want to participate to leave a comment with your first choice for our first selection. I've listed the choices below, and I've linked each book to its Amazon page, so you can read reviews and summaries if you'd like. I'm screening comments on this post, just in case you don't want everyone else knowing which book you picked. :) Please vote by Friday, October 29th. That gives everyone a week..

Once the votes are tallied, let's figure out timing. (I don't know if Thanksgiving, NaNoWriMo, etc., will make it so a significant number of you all will want to push out the discussion so we have more time to read.)

Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.
