I'll leave the poll open until tomorrow, Monday, night and once we have the results I'll get to work on creating the new page for us. Everything should be up and running by Tuesday afternoon and we can then figure out the list for rereads and vote for our book selections for next month.
Very exciting!

Or instead of readinginwonderland, what about readersinwonderland?

You know, I was sure I had added that to the list. Bummer.

I have some questions. Will the new community use the same selecting system we used for the first book? Will there be a reread book? And are we using the same list of books that have already been suggested or will you be calling for an entirely new list of suggestions?

I think the way we selected the first book is the best way. It's the most fair.
I was thinking of keeping the title of books that all of you have been writing down for the past day or so, unless you all want otherwise.
I've made a list, so as soon as we have everything setled and the new page formed I'll post it up so you guys can tell me which ones you've read before. I'll separate the ones that have been read before and put them on a "reread" list, so that we can vote on that too. I don't want to just decide which book we're going to read, like with the Chinese Seamstress. We'll vote on everything.
If you have any suggestions, or things that you would like changed, etc. please let me know. I want everyone to be happy with the new community.

Re: Books
Thanks, that's a great list. I'll definitely put some of these up and keep the rest for future months.

Re: Books
Great! I really wanna thank you for stepping up and volunteering to make a new community and everything. I was disappointed when it looked like it was going to die. Never been in a book club before and the moment I decide to join one it dies haha.

Re: Books
That's so sweet :) I was also disappointed when I saw that nothing was happening, and I'd wanted to join an official book club for a while.
By tomorrow we'll have our own active group. I'm really looking forward to being able to share good books with good people.
