FICTION BOOK POLL: Help select our Sept. thru Nov. 2020 FICTION book!
FICTION BOOK POLL
Help select our September, October & November 2020 FICTION book!
What fiction book would you guys like to read and talk about next?
Since our fiction section has been really slow the past year I am taking the initiative to create this poll on my own. Hopefully we can put some life into our fiction discussions.Your help would be appreciated!
You can tell people online and/or offline to join us for this new fiction book discussion. Spread the word here on the BookTalk.org forums too. If I create a "sticky" thread that appears at the top of every forum it seems people skip right over it. So your help in promoting this fiction discussion is not only helpful but quite possibly essential to attract enough participants to make the discussion exciting and worthwhile for all.
My idea here with this poll is to offer 3 classic fiction books that are commonly banned
from libraries and public schools for one reason or another. Have you seen our Banned Books List - The 100 Most Frequently Challenged Books of 1990-2001
page? I've scoured the list and
paid close attention to the fiction books BookTalk.org members seem to reference frequently on our forums. So these 3 books are going to hopefully excite you guys and lead to an active and satisfying discussion.RULES:
#1. You need to have 5 or more posts on our forums to earn the right to vote in this poll. We do this so that people passing through, with no intention of actually participating, will not vote and skew the poll.
#2. You can vote for 1, 2 or even all 3 books on the poll. The more books you vote for the easier it is for the community to find a book to read and discuss. Please read all 3 book descriptions and a handful of reviews for each book and then vote for ALL books on the poll that you'd be willing to read and discuss with us.
#3. You can change your vote at any time or as often as you like up until the close of the poll. The poll will close when we have a clear favorite.
#4. Spread the word please! Mention this fiction poll and upcoming discussion in your forum posts and private messages and even out there in the offline world. Help make this a success. OK, here are the choices...BOOK 1:The Catcher in the Rye
by J. D. SalingerBOOK 2:To Kill a Mockingbird
by Harper LeeBOOK 3:I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
by Maya Angelou
