I'm thinking, since we have each picked one of our own selections thus far, that we each get two votes. If one of the votes is for one of your own suggestions, then your second vote can't be. Yay, nay?

I voted Notes from the Underground. I haven't read anything from this genre before, so I'm happy to give it a read. The darkness and bitterness of the narrator's character kind of hits close in some ways.

I've also added dub81's vote for The four agreements.

I chose those two since they were the most talked about so far and its made me very interested in reading them. I think it'll likely be Notes from the underground and heart of darkness, will tough to choose between the two once we get there.

So while we know we can also check out our public library (thanks doc) and some discussed the idea of sharing links, which is where my question lies. When link sharing, can we post the links right on this forum? Or should we create some external method of sharing links? I just wanna make sure we're not violating some realgm rules or gonna get this board in trouble somehow.
