Hi everyone

This thread is the place to look if you're wondering where we're up to in Book Club and how to get involved; we realised that all the individual threads each month were getting a bit hard to keep track of!

So, every month as usual we will post the nominations and the poll separately, but the result will be added here with the dates of discussion on the boards and chat. Hopefully this will keep things a bit easier. I'll also keep track of the titles we've already read, so that we don't repeat ourselves :)

You will also find Book Club as a group, click here to join.
