OFFICIAL FICTION POLL: Vote for our next FICTION book!

Unread post

ABOUT THIS POLL:
This poll is completely different than anything we have ever done here on BookTalk.org. First of all, our book choices were chosen using an artificial intelligence app called, Pi, Your Personal AI Assistant. I asked Pi to list 10 fiction books from Easton Press's "100 Greatest Books Ever Written" collection that are available for free online, and in the public domain, and are suitable for engaging book discussions.

WHERE CAN WE READ THESE BOOKS FOR FREE ONLINE?
Below I'm providing links to Amazon, where you can read more about each book choice, but the winning book will have links to multiple sources provided where the book can be read for free online. You will not have to buy a copy of the book unless you desire a print copy, and even then, all of these classics are available in any public or school library.

HOW AND WHEN WILL A WINNER BE SELECTED?
There are a total of 10 fiction books on this poll. The book that gets voted for by a minimum of 6 active members will win and be selected for our next fiction discussion. This next book discussion doesn't have a planned start date. The discussion will start once we have enough interest in a book. Once it starts, it will be a 90-day book discussion, as always.

WHAT IS AN "ACTIVE" MEMBER?
An active member is someone who has made some quality posts on the forums and is someone we feel is likely to participate in the book discussion.

HOW CAN I HELP GET THIS NEXT FICTION BOOK DISCUSSION STARTED?
First of all, cast your votes as soon as possible. Next, help pull in additional participants either from the BookTalk.org forums or elsewhere online or even offline. Tell your family and friends about this upcoming fiction book discussion and get them to join us. Post about this fiction discussion on other websites such as Facebook, Twitter, and other popular social media. Help get the word out and we will have yet another amazing book discussion started shortly.

HOW MANY BOOKS CAN I VOTE FOR?
Vote for any, and all, of the 10 books that you would read and discuss. You can vote for 1 book, 2 books, 3 books, or any number up to and including, all 10 books. The more books you vote for the more helpful you will be to your fellow members and the community as a whole. If people only vote for one or two books, this poll will take a long time to conclude. Your flexibility as a reader and forum participant is very appreciated.

CAN I CHANGE MY VOTE AFTER I HAVE ALREADY VOTED?
Yes, change your votes at any time up until the poll closes. And feel free to attempt to get other members to revise their votes.

WHAT ARE OUR 10 FICTION BOOK CHOICES?

BOOK 01: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
BOOK 02: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
BOOK 03: The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
BOOK 04: Animal Farm by George Orwell
BOOK 05: A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
