Bookclub: Just for fun poll

The Book Club has now been running for a year and I thought it would be interesting and a bit of fun to see which was the overall favourite book.

Please vote for your favourite book. You only have one vote.

I will keep the poll open until the end of October to give everyone who is part of the Book Club a chance to vote.

That was an easy one for me, but then I dare say you could guess which one I was going to vote for anyway! Will be interesting to see the results. Smile

I'm going to have a look at his website when I get a moment to see if there is anywhere to leave a message, but I seem to remember that there isn't.

I loved Replica, and my eyes lit up when I saw Remix on the list (didnt read the question first!) as I hoped it would be a future read.

For me it was a close one between The Kinshield Legacy and The Hanging Shed and given only one vote I went with The Hanging Shed. Both were books I really enjoyed that I probably would't have read had it not been for the KUF Book club.

The other books I've read from the Book Club picks have been really good as well. I've manage to read 7 of the last 8 picks. I wasn't around for the first 4. The one I missed was The Gift of Rain, which looks like its going to be the winner :roll eyes: Unfortunately I was still playing catch up with the previous books so I decided to skip that one and it's looking like I missed the best one going by the vote so far and other comments on the forums Blush

I don't think there is anywhere to post on his website. I so want another book of his to read, it can't come soon enough for me. It is the one author I would break my 'only spend £5 on a Kindle book' rule for!

Please Phil give The Gift of Rain a read. As far as I am concerned it is the best book I have ever read. It is a phenomenal read, and I am obviously not alone in my thoughts on it. Smile

RE: Bookclub: Just for fun poll

Its in my To Read collection, but you'll need to pick a couple of thin books for the next couple of months so I can fit an extra book in again.

I'm a slow reader, 1 or 2 books a month is heavy reading for me. My normal pace is about a book every two months. I've been at the six books a year level for over 5 years. However this year (with kindle) I'm already on book number 20 Big Grin but I'm still struggling to fit in my read and the book club read every month.
