Count Down

It’s almost noon on Friday here in Okinawa I am counting down the hours (almost twenty-four left) till the voting poll for the Planet Books July/August Book Club selection closes.  So far it seems like we will be reading Kate Christensen’s “The Great Man” but close on it’s tail is Elizabeth Noble’s “The Friendship Test”.  Be sure to get you votes in by clicking HERE to read over the nominated titles and vote.  The poll will close Friday at Midnight EST.

We also have two book giveaway contests going on here at Planet Books.  The first is Joshua Henkin’s novel “Matrimony” and the deadline to qualify is this Monday at Midnight EST.  Check out Mr. Henkin’s guest post HERE to check out the rules and enter to win the signed copy of “Matrimony”. 

The second book giveaway is “Mrs. Lieutenant” by Phyllis Zimbler Miller.  The deadline for this contest is July 4th at Midnight EST.  Please check out my review of this book HERE for further details and enter to win the signed copy of “Mrs. Lieutenant”.

I will be using to select the winners for these giveaways and posting the winner the day after each contest ends.  GOOD LUCK!!  These are great books and I enjoyed each one.

Do You Have Anything You Would Like To Read?

This Friday I plan on posting four titles to be voted on for our November book.  As of this moment I do not have anything selected yet nor do I have a theme to be guided by.  If you have a suggestion and would like the title to voted on please leave a comment with this post.  I will add it to the list so check the comments section of this entry throughout the week and if there are not four titles nominated then please add your title. 

If I don’t get four titles by Friday morning, I will nominate books for the remaining slots.  It will be cool to see what has been on your To Be Read List (TBRL).
