The winner of our first vote is:
Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell
by Susanna Clarke
Jonathan Strange won with 31 out of 89 votes. The Namesake was runner-up with 23 votes. I'll automatically put it in the vote for April's book.
Since Jonathan Strange is a long book I thought I'd move back the discussion date to April 4th - giving us an extra week (and more importantly, an extra weekend.) Don't forget, the discussions are ongoing - so if you can't make it when it first begins, make it a little later. I'm thrilled to see that the Roth discussion is still going on (I promise I'll pop back in next week!).
I wanted to mention too, since Jonathan Strange is a hardcover book, it can be expensive. Amazon.com is selling it for $17.61 - just a little more than the paperback will cost - buy.com has it for $15.84! If you'd like to buy the book, bargains can be found.
Thank you all for voting!
Don't forget the February Discussion starts February 28th.

Don't forget about half.com too if you don't mind a used copy.
I'm so glad this was picked--I took a chance and ordered it (and none of the others) as soon as the poll came out. Yeah!

Buy Canadian - www.chapters.indigo.ca - the book is in paperback and with the american dollar, you'll save 20%.

Haven't checked overstock.com yet, but if it's there it'll be a bargain. Reserved a copy at the library...
