Candiss (tantara) | 1207 comments Welcome to July everyone,

It’s a brand new month, so we have two fresh books of the month to discuss. For July, you selected:

July Fantasy: Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde

July Science Fiction: The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack by Mark Hodder

There are a couple of starter topics up for each book, but please feel to start more. If anyone would like to step forward to lead the discussion for either of these books, please let us know!

We also have our schedule set for the next couple of months. August 2011 has serendipitously become C.J. Cherryh month!

August Fantasy: Fortress in the Eye of Time by C.J. Cherryh
August SF: Foreigner by C.J. Cherryh

For September, you selected:

September Fantasy: A Shadow in Summer by Daniel Abraham
September SF: Rainbows End by Vernor Vinge

In other news, our discussion regarding our next series read has been a lively one. The first polls will be going up soon, so if you'd like to chime in and/or nominate something and haven't already done so, you may just have time to slip in under the wire. Don't forget to watch for the impending series selection polls and vote for your preference!

And that's it for now. Enjoy and... get reading!

Stefan & Candiss

Edit to add: Sorry about the weird truncated title for the folder for The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack. The Goodreads system limits folder titles to 32 characters, and this seemed like the most clear way of titling the folder. (Oddly, they allow much longer titles for posts.) I didn't want anyone to misunderstand or think I was being especially lazy this morning!
