I'm cool with King. And now it has the votes. Under the Dome it is then. Any final objections?

I'm like 4.5 hours into the book (out of 35 or something!) and it is quite good. I love the way King does evil. But let's save that for a later date.

I'll probably sit out this month. These days a 1000+ pg. book would take me months.

For the record, I am tearing through this thing.  I started it on Saturday afternoon and am nearly halfway through it.  Of course I was reading into the wee hours of Sunday AM (not non-stop from the afternoon, I took a nap and played Ticket to Ride for a while as well).  I'd say Saturday/Sunday I read about 9 hours total.  It goes really quickly and is hard to put down.

And I hadn't checked the boards in several days, I had no idea this was the book choice for the month!
