    Agreed! For the ones we don't end up picking for Aug, are they allowed to be re-nominated for future months?

    I don't see why not! It was a tough choice for me.

    Since All the Missing Girls is ahead, I wanted to look to see if it was available/how many copies were at my public library. I'm now #53 on the wait list. If this wins out, looks like I'm going to be reading the ebook edition!

  • Al the missing girls has not been easy to find on audiobook. FX my husband can find it on his library.

  • But @FishyMom the book tells the story in a way that some people said made it hard to follow as an audio book.

  • Should we wrap up the poll a little earlier so people can get going on sourcing the book?  I'd like to leave it up through tonight for the non-work bumpers but we could call it tomorrow.  It looks like we've got a clear favorite here, and, selfishly, I'm going to a bachelorette weekend where I expect to have a lot of time to read while everyone else is hungover Sunday ;-)

  • @cjs260 how do you feel about pirates and sailing the seven seas?
  • I wouldn't mind being able to start reading this weekend... Just found a book club guide for All the Missing Girls if tomorrow we see that's the final vote!

    @PerraSucia Would I want to BE a pirate and sail the seven seas? Absolutely. Would I like to read about pirates sailing the seven seas? Yes to that, too.

  • I may just buy the book since I can't get down with e-books. 

  • Thank you for the descriptions for each book!

  • Thanks for the pill and descriptions! 
  • I have some e-book settlement credits to use so bring it on! I'm ready to start this weekend! 
  • Motion to call this thing. Can I get a second?

  • The e-book version was actually available without a wait through my library which almost never happens. When are we going to plan for the first discussion and what's our reading amount goal for by that time?

    No clue! I've never been in a book club before and thought we just discussed it at the end. 

  • If we want to do it in a month, how about ~1/4 week? It's 384 pages according to Amazon, so that's 96 pages a week. When we actually get the book in our hands, we can figure that out with regards to chapters. 

    How about a weekly discussion thread on Sundays? I think someone said they'd found discussion questions online?
  • I'm late to the party on this- but that sounds great! I haven't been able to find a decent book to read in forever!
  • Are we starting on the 1st? 
    FishyMom
  • I'd say the 1st is good starting point.  It'll give everyone enough time to get the book over the weekend and start.

    As for the discussions, I'm not help because my last BMB just did a huge discussion at the end.  I think having them every few chapters is a good idea, that way details are fresh in our minds.

  • And it's a good way to pace ourselves. Although items to read ahead if I'm really into it. 
    FishyMom
  • That sounds good to me.

  • Might I suggest that whichever book is #2 in the poll is next month's book? That way, the ladies using library holds can go ahead and get that on order.
    Rainbow baby Dean is due 2/17/17!

    Yes, I second this... or at least vote early for a second book. I prefer checking them out of the library also, it would make it tons easier to get the book in time.
