Re: which book i want

I thought I put a post on here last night but it's not here. I'll say this again...I have had a message from Dr. Grayling, he says that he is very pleased that the book has been nominated. It has not been released in the US yet but in view of the fact that it is being proposed on Booktalk he is going to talk to his publisher with a view to getting the release date brought forward.I'll keep you informed

Hi everyone,I just voted for "What is Good" by Grayling. I looked online; here's a list of libraries worldwide that definitely already have it. Generally you can just order it through interlibrary loan, but if you have trouble you can bring this list and they will get a copy for you.My second choice is "Water Wars" by Shiva, in case this one is disqualified!

I also voted for Grayling - it's really the only one that I think really sparks my interest. I will really have no idea until I get back to Oz whether it's easily available there or not, but I finally found an online store in Sydney that has it on sale, so at least I can get it from there I think. Still a little expensive though so hopefully some libraries have it! Nicole

Poll stats as of Tuesday, June 29, 2004:Civilization And It's Enemies: The Next Stage of History - by Lee Harris 5 / 35.7% 1. pctacitus2. Chris OConnor3. Brother William of Baskerville 02 (vote won't count this poll)4. ZachSylvain5. Tiarella6. misterpessimistic What is Good? - by A C Grayling 8 / 57.1% 1. CSflim2. Jeremy19523. PeterDF4. tarav5. wrkelly6. Katala Au7. booper54 Water Wars: Privatization, Pollution, and Profit - by Vandana Shiva 1 / 7.1% 1. Dissident HeartNOTE:The poll is still active! I'm simply posting some current stats so we all know where we stand.Brother William of Baskerville 02's vote will not be counted in this poll seeing as he has only contributed 2 posts to the BookTalk forums. As per rule #4 on our Guidelines page we cannot count votes unless the person making the vote has contributed at least 10 posts on the forums. Read the rule for an explanation of why we have this requirement. It looks like he didn't cast a vote in the poll anyway, and simply posted his choice in this thread. We encourage him to continue posting so that next poll he will be able to contribute. Five votes count so far for Civilization And It's Enemies.Out of the 8 votes currently cast for What is Good?, only 7 will be counted. One person failed to make a post in this thread telling everyone that they voted for this book. If this is you please let us know right away so your vote will be counted.Chris "The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them"

How are members supposed to get a copy of this book within two days? I'm a bit concerned.We might want to add a rule that says book nominations must be available for sale on Amazon.com.I see that Amazon.com has 3 copies available only. Any suggestions? And if your suggestion is ro order ir from the UK site please provide some info on how to do this and what the cost might be.Chris "The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them"
