Book Group Voting Results

First and Foremost.... I am a space cadet.

I totally forgot to post the book group voting results back from April.

It was an awfully close race. For those who remember I gave the book group members a week to suggest titles then a week to vote online for the titles. Since I had increased the book group from 9 months to a full 12 months they needed to pick just 6 months worth of selections. Here are their selections....

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith
Anthill: A Novel by E. O. Wilson
Come in and Cover Me by Gin Phillips (Birmingham Author)
Death Comes to Pemberley by P.D. James
A Dog’s Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron
Georgia Bottoms by Mark Childress
How it all began : a novel by Penelope Lively.
Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson
A River in the Sky by Elizabeth Peters
Rules of Civility by Amor Towles
Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay
The Tiger’s Wife by Tea Obreht
A Time to Kill by John Grisham
Treason at Lisson Grove by Anne Perry
Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood

Cleopatra by Stacy Schiff
Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American 
Family in Hitler's
Berlin by Erik Larson
Napoleon’s Buttons by Penny Le Couteur
I took to Twitter to post updates (though none of my book
 group users
 have Twitter...well I take that back. I did recruit a new member
 because they were so excited about the voting results.)
Here are some of the tweets that went on during the election...
I mean selection.

Pretty intense right? 

I have no idea why I never got around to posting the results, but here you are....

We will probably be voting again in October for the 2013 selections. Some people have suggested that I have voting only for 6 months worth of books (that way newer books have options of being added) but I like doing 12 months at a time. Thoughts?
