NON-FICTION POLL: Vote for our February, March & April 2024 NON-FICTION book!

Unread post

What NON-FICTION book should we read and discuss in February, March & April 2024?

Below are 3 excellent choices for our next non-fiction discussion. Please read the book descriptions for all 3 books, and then vote for any/all of the 3 choices that you like. You can vote for all 3 books if you are open to reading and discussing any of the 3 books. Your flexibility is greatly appreciated. The more books you vote for, the easier it will be for us to find the most popular book for our next non-fiction book discussion. We'll create a dedicated forum for the winning book as soon as we have enough people interested in one of these books. Hopefully, that will happen by the end of January 2024.

SIMPLE RULES:
  • Please only vote if you are an active member with at least 5 posts on the BookTalk.org forums.
  • Change your vote(s) at any time up until the poll closes.
  • Pay attention to this poll thread and engage in any discussions you see on the 3 book choices.
  • Consider telling us why you voted the way you voted. Your opinion can influence others.

Here are our 3 non-fiction choices...

I've edited this poll to allow members to change their votes at any time up until the conclusion of the poll. That's how we usually handle these polls, but I accidentally didn't check that particular box when I created the poll. So now you can change your vote should you desire to do so.

Third one without having read any of them. Could be my biography.

We're going to go with The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life. Muhammad, one of our two web guys, is working on some important issues with the site, and the result should be a nice and steady increase in traffic. More traffic means more members and posts. And that should lead to more active book discussions. So hang in there while we work on these improvements. I'm closing this poll and creating the new book forum for The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck right now. :)
