Haha well who doesn't love a good challenge. And you're right, the book club can easily double as a support group for those of us who are struggling  :D

Wow …. I know the votes are hidden, but I'll give you a heads up. It's close. Very close. They are all currently within 1 vote of each other, so if you haven't voted, might want to do so :)

Why are they hidden now?

Because I'm mean? I've done it both ways. Some people like it better hidden, some prefer it not. There's never going to be a way to please everyone. :(

The benefit to hiding votes is early votes can't influence later votes. Everyone will place votes based on what they really want to read versus looking at the results and selecting based on how other people have voted.

May not be decided quite yet. Looking like there may be a run off to break a tie :)

RUNOFF!  ;D

We had a tie between Promise of Blood by Brian McClellan and The Lions of al-Rassan by Guy Gavriel Kay. I am extending the vote for 3 days, so come pick one of these two books :)

Wow .... still close. The tie was broken last time I looked, with Promise of Blood in the lead, and now Lions of al-Rassan is in the lead. About 6 hours left to make the final decision!
