At January’s meeting many people liked the idea of having the host determine the book that is discussed that month. A vote was taken and
- 4 people voted to use the ranking system we used last year.
- 3 people voted for having the host select the book
And while we were at it, we voted whether or not to discuss EriK Larson’s book “Thunderstruck” or remove it from our reading list.
