Next Book Club Selection: Hound of the Baskervilles

Update: Well, maybe because I effectively worked the refs, but the consensus seems to be for Hound. So we will talk about that right around Halloween; I'll figure out the date later.

We might pair it with another short Sherlock story that has spookiness and moors in it. But definitely Hound, in the days before Halloween.

BTW, Hound should be free on Kindle. If you don't have a Kindle, you can download the Kindle software to your computer or tablet, and then download the free Hound to read there.


...

So I attempted a poll, which I did not know would only take the first 100 responses. That ruined the poll.

Until it stopped collecting answers, we had a four-way near-tie between four books: Sowell's Vision of the Annointed, Hoffer's True Believer (the interest in this was surprising, to me), Dracula, and Hound of the Baskervilles.

I think we should do either Dracula or Hound for a simple reason: It is October, Halloween approaches. I'm in the mood for this kind of book. Promise, we'll do either Sowell or Hoffer next.

Which of the two are you more interested in? I'm leaning towards Hound.
