    Correct, that is the final nominations list. Voting closes at noon Central Standard Time (GMT-6). 23 hours from now.

    As many as you want, just not more than one for the same book, obviously.

    To all - when voting, can you please underline and bold your vote(s), so I know for sure that you're voting, and not just making a comment? Thanks!

    Also, I just created a group for the book club. I invited everyone who's posted in this thread, and anyone else is welcome to join as well. I'm thinking it would be a good place to post the book we're currently reading, and maybe conduct the next nomination and voting cycle... this one is too chaotic for my Jness.
    Feb 1 is less than 1 week after we decide on the book, can we please wait longer than that? I doubt I'll even have the book from the library by then (I've put a hold on Anthem preemptively since I think I'll read it regardless of whether it wins, but even that one will likely take 1-2 weeks or so). Surely I'm not the only one relying on the library for this. Maybe I am? I'm a very fast reader, though.

    I'd prefer 1 month or as a bare minimum, 2 weeks, unless everyone's in a big rush....?

    I bolded my votes. I was a bit turned off of the DFW because of the general tomeness/difficulty; perhaps in the future we can read some of his essays? Anathem is a bit tome-ish but if it's anything like Cryptonomicon once you pick it up you can't put it down.

    I won't vote; as I've read none of the above books and have very little data on them they all have the potential to be equally interesting!

    I agree - I won't be able to read through any book in a week right now. I have a copy of Anathem, but I'll need to go to the library for the others. I'm also a fast reader.

    I think two weeks would be long enough for people to get the book and get started on it; I don't see anything wrong with having on-going discussion.

    That's fine with me. I don't think we need to have the whole book read in order to begin discussion, so I think 2 weeks is enough. How about we open discussion on Feb 15?
