Since it is already half way through October and no one has confirmed a book yet, I was wondering if you guys just wanted to go ahead and pick one and start reading? I thought the Thomas Kinkade looked really good - it's avaliable for ereaders only right now until Nov. 1st, so let me know in the next day or so if that's not possible for some of you. If not, I was thinking we could do the other one. The Christmas Spirit. That way we could have a month or so to read it again. Thanks everyone. I hope I am not stepping on anyones toes!

For this month's book - going to start one now!

Okay...so...since there were two books suggested, I am hoping it's okay, but I am going to make an executive decision, which I hope is okay. Let's read "On Christmas Eve" by Thomas Kinkade for this month. We'll read it until the middle of Nov. - let's say a month from today and then I will come up with a few questions. Hope there a few people that will still be able to read this months book.
