    It's always fun to vote on the book club book so I thought I would throw up another poll. These are books that have received high praise in the wackbook threads. I probably forgot a few.

    I should have put Moby Dick up there for you. Best book to read over a time period of 25 years.

    Still at around 52%. I'm going to cut back on my drinking and smoking so I have time to finish it in my life.

    Man, I got to read the Passage, only one on the list that I haven't read. Went Ender out of the choice I had.

    I've only read Ender's Game, LotR, Ready Player One, and Lamb.


    Yeah, well, there.

    Out of that list, I had to go LotR. ASOIAF might have taken it, except I still can't get through Dance.

    LotR is the only one I've read, but lots of times at that.

    I think WWZ could have earned a nomination but I am happy to see RP1 on there. However, for the purposes of this thread I go with The Passage. This isn't your favorite book, it's Wackbag's, and I enjoyed our discussions of The Passage more than any of the others on there.

    The answer is and always has been Jar Jar Martin's ASOIAF. The Passage is a very close second, but if we're talking broad interest and appeal, Martin's books have it beat.
