Okay, I am posting the poll. Please remember that we ask you to post a Goodreads link for your selection. It's pretty easy. Click on 'add book/author' above the box where you write comments. You can type in the book title and it will provide a link to the book. It makes the moderator's job much easier, and it's facilitates members going to the book and reading about it. This time, I went ahead and add the book titles for the people who didn't post links. Next time, they might not make it on the poll. Thanks!
