    I've got 3 out of 4 on digital hold at our library. The Diary Of A Bookseller isn't available at our library at this time. I also have got a few others from the voting list on hold so I'll have lots of books coming in over the coming weeks.

    Great minds think alike... I decided to push all four books back to start in February. :agree

    Sounds like a good plan. I have 2 books lined up to read and they are huge so that'll take up a big chunk of January for me. I've decided to re-read The Passage and then the next in the series, The Twelve.

    I love the Passage series. Have you read The Twelve before or the third one? I loved them all.

    @Karen No, I've only read the first one so it's going to be exciting to read them all. Since they are such big books, I might take a break between #1 and #2 and read something short and easy but for sure they are both on my Jan list for reading. I'm going into my digi library acct today and returning all the books I have and then go back on the wait list for them as now I know I'll be busy with those other books. It's going to be fun b/c I remember the premise of the first book but not all the details. I think the first one is about 5-6 yrs old, right? So it'll almost be like reading it again for the first time since my memory of it is pretty vague but I do remember that I loved it.

    Dang! I missed the voting deadline. I guess I’ll just read whatever you’ve all picked.

    @djp332 Don't worry Donna....read any that are on the list, I check them all out (even the ones not chosen) and read whatever my digi library carries that appeals to me. I love to check out everyones' recommendations. That's why I also stalk pinterest and goodreads for recommendations :)

    I love being in a book club. I've read so many books since I joined - on the list and not on the list. Most books I probably wouldn't have even picked up had it not been for the book club.

    @djp332 Yes, me too, I have read a lot of books over the past couple of yrs that were suggested here that I would otherwise have missed out on. I also tend to judge by the cover too, if it isn't appealing and doesn't catch my eye, sometimes I will just pass it by.

    They must be some popular books. Once again, I'm on a long, long, very long wait list for the first 2 books. I'm already reading Michelle Obama's book and I'm #7 for the last one.

    Nope you're not blind... I just like messing with people. :giggle Just kidding. Justine (thank @bellbird ) already answered you above, but I decided to move it to Feb-May because of MOC, but I just finished my current book and might start early myself. :agree
