...and all have been counted. thank you to those that came out to the polls and voiced your opinion. in a rousing race [of nine ballots], the results are as follows:
1. the red tent
2. the history of love
3. a tree grows in brooklyn
4. the wednesday wars
5. other [thirteen reasons why]
6 and 7. the alchemist, ella minnow pea
i was secretly hoping these would be the top two. you can't go wrong with anita diamant and what's not to love about love. i am actually going to read the history of love and thirteen reasons why in the next two weeks so that i can make a fair, educated judgment. my book clubers are really picky. and intelligent. therefore, things are not written in stone just yet. isn't that how politics go? you think you have the power to decide and in the end the ones in power make all the decisions. ah, it kinda feels nice to be the keeper of the book club throne. keep your eyes peeled, your typing fingers ready and your browsers refreshed, because the final final announcement will be coming soon.
