    Any interest in the author Christopher Moore? I recently read his "Sacre' Beu: A Comedy d’Art" and "The Stupidest Angel: A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror" found them somewhat intellectually stimulating and LOL funny.

    It is available at several Fairfax County libraries. Also as a recorded book.

    Since they made their whole collection floating county-wide, you never know if it's nearby. Best to put a reserve on it and have it sent to the branch nearest you. Still time if you're a fast reader (or listener).

    Hi- I actually read this book a few years ago and thought it was excellent. I look forward to meeting you all!

    Hi all - I just closed the poll for the December book. The winner is Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali

    November 20, 2013

  • Jess

    We had a 3 way tie for the December book. I took off the option with only 1 vote. If we can get a few more votes, I'm sure we can find a winner for this month! Jeni- thanks for posting instructions on how to vote!

    For last month's poll, it took me a few minutes to figure out how to access the actual poll as I'm not too familiar with this website. So just in case there are others like me, I thought I'd share...in order to vote for the book that we'll read next time, look towards the top of the page at the bar listing "Home...Members...Photos..." etc. Choose "More" and you can find the poll in a drop down menu there.

      I'm liking the "See y'all in the gnu year!" part of the comment! :-P

      Sushi could earn her own puppy chow. Just pimp her out. That cuteness is a serious commodity! :-P

    Living to Tell the Tale by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Two people from the first group really enjoy his writing, so I'll take their opinion! I'm up for reading any of the choices though, they all sound interesting.
