    Default Book Choice - April 08 - Vote Now!

    I've fixed it so you can only vote once so no vote rigging! Poll closes on 5 Feb, the day we discuss The Discomfort Zone.

    If you want to add to the poll, please PM me and I will add it to the June Poll.

    I voted for Atonement because I bought it at the same time as The Discomfort Zone because I thought it might end up being our next book. But I bought other stuff too, and own some of the above, so it's all good.

    I voted for Memories of My Melancholy Whores because it's one I've been meaning to read.

    i voted for 'the crying of lot 49' because i've loved the other pynchon books i've read. and because it was my nomination
    but i had a hard time choosing between that and 'atonement' and 'ulysses', 2 others i've been meaning to read for years.

    Speaking of bitches, I'm tempted to add a few titles by Dr Phil but that would be petty and childish LOL

    Why, I love Flaubert! Silly bitch, indeed.

    The Ulysses is a tough read, let's put it that way. Tough. So tough.

    i admit i like the 'trois contes' but la bovary gave me the shits. i was just waiting for the stupid ho to die, already.
    lol can't be tougher than flaubert or *shudders* zola. i had to read those 2 in high school and hated them. proust was also very tough to read at 17 but definitely more enjoyable.

    lol i'm fine with most of it but i dislike 2 of their biggest sacred cows, flaubert and zola. and it's practically taboo to admit that in some circles. but there is some very, very funny stuff too. andré gide, romain gary, boris vian, albert cohen...
