Gym Reads Poll #2: What should I read next?

Leave a comment

It’s that time again.  In the last poll, folks chose Karen Joy Fowler’s Sarah Canary.  I’m almost done with that particular book, and I will have some thoughts about it when I complete it on Monday.  Heck, there may even be a podcast about it (and The Book of the Dun Cow, which I finished about a week and a half ago).

But now it’s time to pick another book to read during my gym adventures.  As with the previous poll you can select up to 5 books on the list.  Please pick a few to vote for.  You can vote for books you liked or even books you’d like me to read and talk about (sometimes really important books will appear on these lists; sometimes books that are of questionable quality will appear).

So, yeah.  VOTE!

This picture is terrible. I couldn’t bring myself to spend the time to get a good shot with my cell phone, so…meh.
