    Should we vote on another "Book of the Month" selection?

    We've tried running a "Book of the Month" group in the past, but participation seemed to dwindle.... How interested is everyone in trying this again? We'd choose a theme, suggest titles, vote to select one, then read it as a group, discussing it together during/after we read. Who's in?

It's not the first novel I've read that was written in verse and was not the best example for...
