DISCLAIMER: CHECK THE PRICES FOR THE BOOKS ON AMAZON. FOR COMICS, THEY ARE THE BEST BET.

KEEP IN MIND THAT THE THEIF OF THIEVES OPTION IS 2 RELATIVELY THIN VOLUMES. MAY THE BEST BOOK WIN!
First of all, I want to give all credit for this idea to the wonderful King Kong. He decided not to make this thread, but hopefully this one lives up to his idea.
Basically, we are going to read a book! After the voting on the book, I will allow perhaps 3-4 days for the people signed up to get the book. Depending on how many pages there are in the book, we will read a certain sum each day and discuss them. Naturally there will be spoilers, so don't read the new posts if you are behind on your reading!
The goal of this project is to help OT become better read, and unite over friendly discussion of a book. There will be predictions, disagreements and some quality discussions about each reading.
I have selected 5 good books of different genres. I have personally read all of them and can vouch for their quality. Voting will be closed on Monday evening.
Not all of the choices are super literate or anything, it won't take a genius to understand these. Well, Siddhartha is kind of deep.
WE BEGIN AMERICAN GODS ON MAY 15, PERHAPS A FEW DAYS LATER. THE DECISION TO RESCHEDULE WAS MADE SO MORE PARTICIPANTS COULD TAKE PART.
American Gods- 624 pages
Try to find it at a library near you, or shell out the 8 bucks for the MMP at your local Barnes and Noble. Or go with Amazon, they're always reliable.
