Creating a new thread for news regarding the Big Reads Poll.

In the spirit of past Completest Polls we have a tie! Middlemarch and Atlas Shrugged battled it out with no clear winner.

This is a good problem to have, though, as now we are set through the end of the year. This will be our schedule:

Atlas Shrugged - July-September 2018
Middlemarch - October-December 2018

So, we are set with Big Reads until 2019!

Well - I tried to send the links again in an message to the group, and it shortened them and is linking to some old, unrelated poll! Sorry everyone!

The Big Read Poll:

It came down to The Name of the Wind and The World According to Garp with Midnight's Children making a last minute push. But the final result is:

January to March 2019 - The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

The next poll will come in March for our April to June selection.

Yay! I've wanted to read this for a while and now I have urgency! I won't be able to start on it until late in July, but I'm excited.

Oh good it is the BigRead winner! I was a bit afraid that it was for October only. I will read along but didn't vote for it... It's interesting that we ended up with 2 very sizeable retellings of the Arthurian tale in one year! (Mists of Avelon, Zimmer Bradley)

Believe it or not, Mists of Avalon was back in 2017! 😃 Time flies when you're reading!

Last day to vote - not out of the question for what appears to be a comfortable lead for Lonesome Dove to dissolve if we have several last minute voters . . .

It has been a while since we have done a second chance poll for the big reads. Some of the titles have appeared in recent big reads polls because there are not quite as many large books on our must read lists.

The books in our poll are all books that got many votes, but never won.

Happy voting and happy reading!

In what has become a grand tradition for this group, we have a tie! In fact, it was almost a three way tie - The Terror finished just one vote behind the co-winners.

Instead of a tie-breaker, we will just do the following:

April to June 2021 - Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett
July to September 2021 - House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski
