Yeah, if that was the spread you're absolutely right.

A pity, since Nation is one of his best books and it's thoughtfulness and epic themes fits Pratchett's later years way better than the silliness of Mort or other early discworld books. (Don't get me wrong, Mort and Wee Free Men are fantastic books - I just think that Nation would've fit our book club better.)

Anyways, voted!

Oh, that is too bad. If I had realized, might have voted for it. But doesn't seem like it would have made a difference over all though :(

It's awfully close and I don't think it's going to change. So better close it soon before we get a tie again. ;)

Here's the sign up post, hope lots of people can join in. To anyone who might have missed voting, it was a close race between Pratchett and Pratchett. Pratchett won, so come join in!
