Not a very popular set of books for this month :P

I do hope Unbroken wins out, considering the film adaptation (written by the Coens, directed by Angelina Jolie, cinematography by Roger Deakins) is coming out next month.

Really intrigued how that film turns out considering Angelina Jolie is at the helm.

I hope Unbroken wins, Cause I don't want to read it. So I can have my catch up month! If Invisible Man wins I will want to read it!

Also I thought Cronenberg's book would be way more popular.

With people falling behind and the holidays approaching, I'd suggest making December a month for catching up and picking the next book in January.

That's a great one, I read it a few years ago.  Looking forward to peeking in on your discussion.

Okay, that works for me.  I don't know if it matters how long we have.  I will read it as quick as I can after I get it from the library.
