1.) Nominate up to 2 books
2.) Second as many book as you like
3.) All seconded books will go into the voting round (and you can vote for up to 3 books)
Should we nominate until Saturday? I do not know how to set up the poll, so please help!
The Red and the Black--Stendhal
And I'll also third The Adventures of Augie March.
I'll nominate Madame Bovary, let's see if it'll get over the line this time! :)
And, I'd rather not repeat books either (even though I wasn't in this group for the first read of Bleak House). Plenty of other books out there without us having to double up!
I withdraw my second of Bleakhouse. Although I joined this group to late to read it, I would not want to have a repeat up for nomination.
I was just thirding, because I was actually going to nominate it, but by the time I checked in, it had already been nominated *and* seconded!
#15> wrmjr66, There is a list of the books already discussed on the front page of this group: http://www.librarything.com/groups/groupreadsliterature
At the moment we have 10 books that have been nominated and seconded:
The Adventures of Augie March
The Red and the Black
Portrait of a Lady
La Reine Margot
The Golden Notebook
The Teutonic Knights
The Way We Live Now
Nominations close on Wednesday and i'll set up a poll after closing.
The link to the poll is below. You can vote for as many books as you want but please don't vote more than once for a particular book. I'll be keeping an eye on this!... if that's possible with MisterPoll.
I've set the closing date for Monday 5 July if people think that's ok? If there's two clear winner we'll read both those books. If results are not that clear then we'll have a second poll.
I would also go for the Sharon Penman book.
Anything by Jane Austen
The Hound of the Baskervilles
That sounds like a good plan. I will need to find a copy of The Red and the Black; any suggestions on which English translation is best? I heard that the new translation by Burton Raffel is a little too modern, changing the writing style too much. Help....
Anyone know how to close the poll?
