    Phillip Gulley, Home to Harmony
    Kate Atkinson, When Will There Be Good News?
    Dorothy Sayers, Whose Body?

    Let's close the voting on Wednesday night.

    A friend suggested that last one to me, so I thought I'd put it in the vote.

    Looks like one of our criteria is library hold list wait time! Jean's got a good point about Q & A. Let's put it on hold now and consider it for March. Could be a bit of a wait for that one.

    Currently reading My Name is Will: a novel of Sex, Drugs, and Shakespeare. Surprisingly well-constructed and loaded with interesting things about the Bard and his times, but might be a bit too explicit for some!

    Happy Groundhog day,

    I voted last night, but my post has vanished with der schnee of yesteryear.

    Ok, I vote for Atkinson.

    I vote for Sayers, Whose Body? Hope the library will carry it...I live in such a small town:)

    Rats. I've got a long wait on the hold list for the Atkinson.

    I'll vote for Home to Harmony. There was no wait for that one!

    One neat thing about our Book Club, though, is hearing about good titles. I tend to put them all on hold.

    How big is your town? I grew up in a village; main street two blocks long. Our library was the
    size of a living room. It was open 5 hours a week.

    Ken, yes, our book chats are a good source for hearing about new books. One thing I've
    learned over the years. You can't rely on those blurbs on the cover. Usually
    obtained from writers who all have the same publisher.

    I don't know what number I am. I put 3 or 4 books on hold. Didn't pay any attention.

    What is TO? Do you live in Thousand Oaks? I used to almost 40 years ago.

    Think it's nap time.
