I think my favorite book was I am Legend. Such an amazing read, incredibly moving and tense at times.

Oh! I loved that one! One of my favorite reads of the year.

As someone interested in the results of this poll, but not having read along, how do I see the results without voting first?

There should be a [VIEW RESULTS] button just below the poll. :)

Oh yep, there sure is. Thanks!

I did not join many of the book club reads, but of those that I did I enjoyed The Night Circus the most. It actually ended up being one of my favourite books of the year.

I picked The Girl Who Circumnavigated..., The Night Circus, and Fahrenheit 451 as my three favorites. While the first two were easy no-brainers for me, that last one was much more difficult - it was between Bradbury, Horns, and Old Man's War.

Definitely wishing I'd participated in more book club reads. These look like a lot of great books! (And I love the spread of votes - even if Night Circus is so far ahead of the others).

You participated in quite a few, especially the science fiction :) And yes, the spread of votes is interesting. I wish Feersum Endjinn had a vote because while it was not favorite book, it was quite good and I really enjoyed the discussions. Also a little surprised that Altered Carbon did not get any votes (yet. always time for more) :)
