I voted for both so if we had ability to change votes I could break the tie by unvoting one.

I say we should read the Christie...it's shorter.

Likewise, except I would go the other way. Tied again! :))

Agreed. For future reference can't we make the book selections 350 to 400 pages maximum. Nothing's gonna sink a fledgling book club/group quicker than when the reading becomes a chore rather than a joy.

Woohoo!  :)



Shorter book wins is not a bad tie breaker. Monty is right.

I didn't vote for it before, but I now vote for the Christie.   I'd change my vote to include it if I could.
