Patrick | 26 comments For March, we have a first - a piece of fiction!

Boneshaker, by Cherie Priest

Plus, Sunzi Speaks by Tsai Chil Chung (Sun Tzu's The Art of War, illustrated).

We went with two books again as Sunzi Speaks will be short, being illustrated, and there was interest in it. I would have given a Borders link for it (seeing as they are hosting our club), but they no longer carry it, which is another reason for two books.

We also considered Inferno by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle, a modern day version of Dante's book by the same name, and...another book whose title I can't quite remember (@Cindy - help!). Let us know what you think - one of those is likely to appear next month.

We also looked at The Historian: A Novel, but at 720 pages, we decided that was a bit long. We think it might be a good "Holidays" book for a December/January meeting, meaning we take two months to read it, skipping December and meeting in January. Thoughts?

Thank you for your time and hope to see you in March!

Cindy Gosh, Patrick, we looked at so many. We considered Dracula by Bram Stoker; Horns, the new novel by Joe Hill (@ Patrick - how do you make those book links, anyway?); The Road by Cormac McCarthy; something about the Otaku (@Holly - help us out with the titles); I think a couple others got named too. Many were books one of us had already read - we eventually started wandering book store aisles to seek new books to all three of us, which is how we found Boneshaker. It looks quite good - and passed the test of our three highly diverse tastes.

Patrick | 26 comments @Cindy - I put a more comprehensive list of what I could remember in the February thread. This is what I could remember before going to bed last night. ;-)

Cindy found the more complete list after posting this . . . should read all the new comments before replying I guess, but I'm just not very good at holding my tongue!

Patrick | 26 comments The best way to explain is for you to look at the comment box at the bottom of the page. Just above its upper right corner is a hotlink titled "(some html is ok)".

Click it.

It opens a window of formatting tips. You want the one called "link". It shows the correct syntax for creating a link.

I can't type the syntax as it would become a link and you wouldn't see any of the coding.
