Loretta Oh my!😮


message 3: by George P. (new)

George P. Looks like Jungle Book is going to run away with it- unless maybe people switch their votes to one of the closer rivals.


message 4: by Pink (new)

Pink Mod
Wow, that is a runaway winner, almost double the votes of second place. Think this ones a done deal!


message 5: by Loretta (new)

Loretta I can almost hear Fleetwood Mac singing "Landslide"! 🤣


message 6: by George P. (new)

George P. I understand that Kipling's novel Kim is considered more of an adult-read than Jungle Book.


message 7: by Pink (new)

Pink Mod
Yes, Kim is definitely more of an adult book.


message 8: by Loretta (new)

Loretta And I guess that's the end of that! What a landslide!

Still 6 hours left! ;)

I sincerely doubt that the six hours left will have any effect in this poll George!

Polls closed in August and The Jungle Book was indeed our winner!

Walden was nominated again for our November read. You should go and second it there if you're interested Newly! 😊
