Okey dokey then. The voting ended up with a tie so I was forced to resort to ye olde coine toss as predicted. The results are that we will be reading Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce for January. February will be My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me: Forty New Fairy Tales edited by Kate Bernheimer. Yes, it is a shorter month for a longer book but my thinking is that we can start the longer book in January and have time to finish it before the end of February so I didn't argue with ye olde coine.
And then because it came in third and I want to read it, A Tale Dark and Grimm by Adam Gidwitz will be the read for March 2011. This one has been really, really burning up the internet with positive reviews.
Here's the official list:
January 2011: Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce
February 2011: My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me: Forty New Fairy Tales edited by Kate Bernheimer
March 2011: A Tale Dark and Grimm by Adam Gidwitz
We'll resume voting for the next titles after that. If we make this work! I hope it works...
The next question is do we want to actually have a chat for the book club or simply set up a conversation on the SurLaLune Discussion board or elsewhere? I know there are other ways to meet and chat but I haven't investigated them yet. I am more concerned about schedules. No one visits this site at the same time. Live conversation is nice, but we will probably get more participation if it is simply a running conversation over a week....also allows people to think and come back with new thoughts, too.
