World War I came out on top in our theme poll so that will be our theme for our online retreat in March. This first poll is going to be a fiction poll. We will read 3 or 4 fiction books, depending on length. The top 3 (or 4) winners of the poll will be our fiction selections. We will have one non-fiction read and I will be asking for nominations in the discussion area. Last day to vote will be Tuesday, Oct. 22.
