Okay, first off, we got so few votes that we had a tie. So I'll be extending this poll to another week to see what people want to read.
What happened to Tom Sawyer?
Our first book, The adventures of Tom Sawyer, had it's discussion thread up, but to no avail. Seriously, did Anyone at all read this?? IT was a great book, but it seems as though no one was interested. ._.
It doesn't surprise me that not many people these days have an interest in reading, but when a community as a whole seems to take an interest, but then they just turn out to not want to bother, it perplexes me.
So tell me, fellow MOGers, should this little club stay open? Am I the only one even reading? O-o
Here's week 2's books that got votes, put up for a tiebreaker.
Jumper by Steven Gould
The sudden discovery of his teleportation ability rescues teenager David Rice from his abusive father. It also signals the beginning of a new life for the troubled young man. Gould's first novel features a hero who is not particularly wise and whose ethics are sometimes questionable, but whose yearnings and psychological turmoil ring true.
Silence of the lambs by Thomas Harris
Clarice Starling, a precociously self-disciplined FBI trainee, is dispatched by her boss, Section Chief Jack Crawford, the FBI's most successful tracker of serial killers, to see whether she can learn anything useful from Dr. Hannibal Lecter. Lecter's a gifted psychopath whose nickname is "The Cannibal" because he likes to eat parts of his victims. Isolated by his crimes from all physical contact with the human race, he plays an enigmatic game of "Clue" with Starling, providing her with snippets of data that, if she is smart enough, will lead her to the criminal. Undaunted, she goes where the data takes her. As the tension mounts and the bureaucracy thwarts Starling at every turn, Crawford tells her, "Keep the information and freeze the feelings." Insulted, betrayed, and humiliated, Starling struggles to focus. If she can understand Lecter's final, ambiguous scrawl, she can find the killer. But can she figure it out in time?
As Always, I'm still looking for suggestions for books, as well as themes for the week.
Next week's theme: Free for all!
There will be no theme, I'll just take some of the random suggestions and post em up here in a poll <3
