I live. I die. I live again.
Month two of the book club! It seems like most of us finished Lords of the Realm, hooray us. This time around we'll be looking for something shorter to read. ;)

This thread exists to:
1. Determine what book we should pretend to read in the next month or so.
2. Discuss the book in question, bring up any questions, etc.

I'd like to have the book selected by Friday, and be fake democratic. We can have an open call for suggestions or I can use the remaining titles from our last poll or we can do both I guess.

This is "for January" but it's already January so I think it's more like until mid-February and the next will be mid-February to mid-March and then we'll see where we are with baseball around the corner
