What will we do if it's a tie...?

A run-off

Second place would be read next, I should think.

Time wise, I don't know how many I can handle a month ... unless of course, some are audio books. Probably the way I'll go as long as I can get unabridged. Shy

You could always draw your own pictures?

RE: TTA book club
Well, at 8 votes that means we have somewhere in the vicinity of 4 interested people (assuming 2 votes each in the above poll)?

Should I arrange to have a run-off between the God Delusion and Arguably?

Actually, we have 6 people who voted, but some only gave 1 one vote.

RE: TTA book club
And if we do vote, I think the best idea is to do as Kim suggested and do the 2nd place book next. So, I have already placed a copy of the God Delusion in my cart over at amazon. I have no idea what I did with my first copy.

OK, I'll play your silly game.Dodgy

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

RE: TTA book club
Tides turn as Chas comes in and splits it between God is not Great and the God Delusion...Interesting.
