Sorry I'm a bit late in posting this thread... but it's time to vote! There were three nominations that I could not include - two because the pair didn't have one from the list & one because each person can only nominate two pairings. Otherwise the choices are as follows:

A Separate Peace & A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
Balzac the Little Chinese Seamstress & Eat Pray Love
Bee Season & A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
Beloved & The Scarlet Letter
Daisy Miller & A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
Metamorphosis & The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle
Middlesex & Eat Pray Love
Middlesex & Orlando
Pygmalion & Flowers for Algernon
Reading Lolita in Tehran & Balzac the Little Chinese Seamstress
Reading Lolita in Tehran & Lolita
Reading Lolita in Tehran & Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood
Speak Memory & Special Topics in Calamity Physics
The Handmaid's Tale & A Room of One's Own
The Namesake & The Kite Runner
The Secret Life of Bees book:Manalive
Time Again & Otherland: City of Golden Shadow

Select your top three pairings and list them in order. As before, please try to keep this thread just to voting so that it can be processed that much faster! Thanks gang! Voting will close at midnight the morning of the 29th and the selection announcement will closely follow sometime that day. Happy voting!
