This is a voting only thread. Discussion can still take place on the other thread. I will explain my reasoning for picking these in more reason there.

Winner: Life of Pi!

To summarize:
Invisible Man- 4
Catch 22- 8 (after I.M. secondary votes)
Life of Pi- 12 (after I.M. secondary votes)

Now all we need is a schedule of some sort, which I'm too tired, lazy, and alternatively busy to work out tonight. Thanks for sitting through my muddlings and apologies to MrCranky and MWChapel

In a reversal of prior statements elsewhere...

Sorry, Invisible Man. Hope to meet you at another point in the road.

I've borrowed the Swedish translation of the book and read to the second part now.

Translations to Swedish are much easier to come by in the libraries. The Canadian edition wasn't available in the main library at the moment and I was too lazy to travel to the libraries in the suburbs where it was available.

I haven't really looked before.

I realised I, um, helped a friend with her essay on the book. (That is, I reformulated it to fit with teatcher brains, that might have been cheating. Oh well...) But I haven't read it. We shall see if I find it today.
