Oh nice, you'll probably finish it earlier than me. And you'll also get a vote for Eclipse's book poll ;D

Either that or you'll all hate it so much you'll ban me from the forum. Not that I'm ever insecure about my writing or anything...

Great choice, count me in! :)

For the next months we could do polls and decide for a book democratically - unless you want to be the god emperor of the FF book club, which I'm okay with too. ;)

I’m thinking of being the God Emperor of the book club but only for the short term.

. After March  we will do polls and see how there go. I  remember when Arry did some polls  and people  were voting for their favourite books and not being active in the book club as there already read the  story already.  I want members to vote/nominate  for new books to them as that way there  be more likely to be active in the book club.


.

Oh memories. And someone tampered with the polls so 50 Shades of Gray was an option. And it even got a vote.

Crazy that the paperback is cheaper at Amazon than the Kindle!

I teeter on this book every time someone sings its praises, but every time I go and look at it and go, "...I just don'y really like fairytales." So I think no, but I'm watching with great interest. One day someone'll tip the balance on this one. :)

Apologies, I lean towards cupiscent views on this. Not really my cup of tea. Will pass.
