Book Club Voting, Round 2

For this poll, I took the five books that didn’t win but that got the most votes other than American Gods, figuring those seemed to have strong constituencies. I should note that, because however much I love you all, this is not a cheerocracy, I excluded Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell on the grounds that while you could do some interesting stuff with analysis of academia and professional societies, I think there just isn’t enough that I feel I can draw enough out of the novel that fits the overall mission of the blog. So, as with the last time, voting is open until noon on Thursday and I’ll announce our new choice and what we’ll read for next week on Friday:

Which book should we read for our next book club?
The Yiddish Policeman’s Union
The Diamond Age
The Windup Girl
The Road
