Dear Book Lover --
If you have not already voted in our current polls, please do so.August Book Poll:
The deadline to vote on the August nonfiction book selection is tomorrow at midnight. Currently three votes separate the top two picks (Why Men Are the Way They Are
, by Warren Farrell; American Lion: Andrew Jackson in The White House
, by Jon Meacham). September Book Poll:
Because the club voted overwhelmingly for two-months lead time on book selections, tomorrow also is the deadline for the September fiction book selection. As of today, we have less than half as many votes for the September selection as the August selection. Currently, the top two vote-getters are tied (To Kill a Mockingbird
, by Harper Lee; Nineteen Eighty Four
, by George Orwell), and only one votes separates these from the book now in third place (The Haunting of Hill House
, by Shirley Jackson) So, please take weigh in make your choice.Location Accessability Poll:
This poll stays closes July 31.
Thanks for actively participating in the Denver Book Club. Your voice matters!

P.S. About spam prevention on Meetup
If you are in other meetup groups, you might have been spammed yesterday morning by a "Marcia." I'm glad to report that Meetup.com has since deleted her from the network. Her spam didn't get through to Denver Book Club members because our mailing list is set to require an organizer's approval of emails before they are distributed. I'd started moderating emails recently to avert use of the mailing list for discussions that belong on our open message board. I'd felt qualms about moderating our mailing list, since I believe in open communication, but it turns out the setting spared us from yesterday's spam, sent to thousands of Meetup members nationwide. Therefore, unless I hear objections, although it means extra work on my end, I'll continue moderating our mailing list -- for now.
