^ Oh good point regarding the lead time. Thanks for pointing that out.
Sorry, I wasn't able to take that into account since I could source most books instantly from the Kindle store or - in rare cases where I couldn't - within the day from a nearby bookstore. I didn't realize that it would take some people some time to get copies in a manner that would be ideal to them so that they could participate.
So in my mind, the plan was to vote this week for what book to read, and then discuss the chosen BotM throughout the month of September (SEP 1-30). But if there needs to be time for people to acquire copies, we could set a lead time that most would be comfortable with.
Would voting for the book now and starting the discussion on October be ideal for most? Or would that be too long? Maybe a mid-September start? Those interested in joining, please opine what system would be most comfortable
