I'm not enthusiastic about any of the selections. I guess I'll abstain.

UPDATE: This poll has been reopened!!! Our book polls will remain open for a full two weeks starting with this poll. We changed from reading/discussing one book every month, to one book every two months, and then eventually one book per quarter, but we never increased the duration of the polling period. Doing so might give members more of an opportunity to participate, and participation is exactly what we want.I'll try to get our quarterly polls up during the first week of the final month of each reading period so that they can stay up for the full two weeks AND end with plenty of time before the end of the current reading period. We want everyone to have plenty of time to order a copy of the winning book.I'll now edit our Home page where I had announced the winner and we'll keep this poll open until Sunday, June 26th. Please get involved in this reading and discussion people! Book discussions are what BookTalk is all about. Chris Edited by: Chris OConnor  at: 6/22/05 2:46 pm

I will go with one for each of the three. I am equally divided between Blink and Freethinkers. I want to read both of them. Endless Forms actually sounds really good also, but I can think of a few people I know that need to read it more than myself. Maybe I'll give it to them and borrow it.
