Thank you everyone for taking the time to vote for my book club’s next read. Thanks also for the many great book suggestions that you sent that weren’t on my original list. I have noted them all because I’m always looking for something good to read, and I know that you, Dear Readers, would never steer me wrong.
People voted by commenting on my blog post, but also by email, Facebook and Twitter. Many of you already know what book I have chosen, but let’s do a drum roll anyway. The winner is:
The Bone Cage by Angie Abdou!
I must confess that once the author commented on my blog post, and then mentioned via Twitter the possibility of attending our humble meeting in person, I picked her book before even tallying the votes. However, I have now tallied the votes and her book did in fact win by a margin of three votes over the second place Bel Canto. After that, One Day, Sanctuary Line and The Slap all tied for third.
I am very much looking forward to reading this book, and I just loved that so many people took an interest in commenting here. I love that people are so passionate about books and reading.
Ms. Abdou, the tentative date for our meeting is May 5th, but we will happily change the date if you will be coming to Ottawa at another time!
