My vote went to Good Omens. The reviews lead me to believe that this book is quite funny and I welcome that.

I just want to say:

PLEASE if you are voting in the book club have every intention of reading the book and participating in the discussion. I felt like those who suggested and/or voted for Mennonite in a LBD weren’t even around for the reading and discussion.

Thanks :biggrin:

One side note. Good Omens is not available on Kindle. The book was released in 1992.

There were at least four books in the poll that I would be happy reading. Coincidentally, these are the four that have been voted for.

I don't mind reading a paper book, as I do not own an e-reader. Did you see that Amazon has a used copy of Good Omens for $0.01?

I guess I have gotten used to the ease and convenience of my Kindle but I have no problem buying the paperback if the winning book is not available as an e-book.

I think I am going to leave it as is. If I have to buy the paperback I will do so. No biggie. Hubby is familiar with the book and said I would probably like it as it is similar to another author I do like, Christopher Moore.
