Oh wow lord, Middlemarch is 904 pages :o

Whoops, I didn't know it was that long I just knew I wanted to read it. Isn't there a limit? should I pick another one?

We could group watch the miniseries. It's only 375 minutes and worth every one of them. Ahh, but that would be another thread. :)


Can we throw Stranger in a Strange Land back into the mix?

Oh no, no need to change it :) There's no page limit, I was just surprised ;D

May I cancel my nomination for Scalzi's Lock-in, and instead nominate Len Deighton's Berlin Game?

I just noticed it watching Jackie Brown.

Sorry I had to create a new thread :-[ It slipped my mind to use an existing thread for the nominations.

After voting, this thread will be re-appropriated as the discussion thread for the chosen book.

Poll is up. Please vote for ALL books you are interested in reading.

Thanks!

Wow, it looks like I could be reading an Asimov and Heinlein book this month. Might as well throw in an Arthur C. Clarke novel in there while I'm at it :P
