And the winners are...

1. The Day of the Dolphin: Popular vote
2. Amongst Women: Randomizer

Which book(s) will you be reading?


message 2: by Diane (new)

Diane  | 2051 comments I haven't read either book. I don't own a copy of The Day of the Dolphin and my library doesn't have it, so I am not sure about that one.

Tracy (tstan) | 559 comments I have a battered copy of Day Of the Dolphin I purchased from Amazon a few years ago- of course listed as in “good” condition. As long as it has all its pages, I’ll read it.
I loved Amongst Women when I read it ages ago. But, since I’m avoiding the rereads, I’ll just look forward to reading the discussion.

I have a copy of The Day of The Dolphin that I found at an used book sale. I will be reading that one. I've read Amongst Women which I liked but no rereads of that one this time around.

I've ordered Day of the Dolphin from Bookdonors (I've just discovered this company who sell second hand books in very good condition. They're not-for-profit & seem like a good charitable company, but think they might only post to the UK). So I'll be reading that one :o)

Pip | 1478 comments I am looking forward to reading Amongst Women on my Kindle, but I have had to order an expensive copy of Day of the Dolphin from Amazon. it should be here when I return from holiday. Hopefully I will have time to read it by the end of the month.

Diane  | 2051 comments I was able to find a copy of Day of the Dolphin on Paperbackswap.


Kelly_Hunsaker_reads ... | 894 comments It sounds like Day of the Dolphin may be out for me. Bummer.

Chinook | 282 comments I got a cheap copy of Day of the Dolphin when it was mentioned it was out of print during the nominations.

I just put in a request for an ILL for Amongst Women, so we’ll see if it arrives on time.

Looking for hosts to facilitate the discussions for the following books.

The Kindly Ones by Jonathan Littell Seasonal Read (I don’t think anyone volunteered)

Unless by Carol Shields

Requiem for a Dream by Hubert Selby Jr.

Any volunteers?


message 11: by Chinook (new)

Chinook | 282 comments I could do Requiem for a Dream if you don’t have any other volunteers yet.


Kelly_Hunsaker_reads ... | 894 comments If you aren't getting the volunteers I could do Unless. But I am just finishing Count, so take others first. :)

Hi Kristel,
I don't mind helping out for the Kindly Ones but I am traveling in July and August so I don't know how active I will be. I did find some questions online so I could post those. Let me know your thoughts.
