Erich, the nominations ended last nite. We are voting now. See the poll section to vote on book.


Erich Sysak | 3 comments Oops, thank you...

April, it takes a strong person to apologize like that, and I do appreciate it. I am happy to hear that a book had such a positive and permanent impact on you.

I hope you understand why it is unfair to gather support in the way that you did to push votes for a group read. And that sadly, I am sticking with my decision to no longer count the book as a nominee for the polls.

I am flattered that you like the group, and invite you and your friends and colleagues to look around and get to know us. I look forward to seeing the ways in the which you will participate here.

Although I had not created a rule specific to pushing votes within a poll, I sincerely hope that this situation will not be repeated in the future.

El April, thanks for your honesty. I hope you're feeling better. I think everyone can let this go now. I know it's not my place to say, but I feel the issue has been resolved and no further apologies or complaints are necessary.

THanks to everyone who voted, and I look forward to seeing the discussions when I open them on October 1st!


Carol I am 198 in line for Sarah's key at the library, do you think it will come in October next year?


Erika | 325 comments Lol, Kitty.

I think my sister will be happy to get her copy of Sarah's Key back in November (even though I didn't vote for that one...haha!).

Ok, I am sure you have noticed that I have deleted quite a few posts from this thread.

They were removed since the author was not responsible.

And we leave it at that.
