I'm in! But I thought the Discovery of Witches was meh-better than Twilight and nowhere near as good as Outlander, derivative of both. I really wanted to like it more! Haven't read anything else on the list!

I'm in too! I've already read Gone Girl, so I'm voting for the other one, but I think Gone Girl is probably better for book discussion.

I'm in too! I've never done a book club at all so I'll need some instruction as to what we do ... do we just post our thoughts in a thread?

Ah, interesting! It's close now! Get your votes in :-) I'm excited to get started.

What would you like the time frame to be? How long would you like to read the book once we've selected the book?

This is new to me, too! (oops) In the past, they broke the book into sections and set a date to start discussing. I'm going to figure out the logistics soon for our discussions. If anyone has suggestions, I'd love them!

Is anyone on Goodreads? I am on there and would love to "friend" people to get more book ideas and reviews.

Is there life outside of Disney? If so, I don't want to know about it.

I am interested in joining the new book club. Discovery of Witches is already downloaded to my Nook, but I have not had a chance to read it yet. Perfect chance to read and discuss with fellow book lovers!

I would love to join! Gone Girl sounds very interesting, but I'm happy with Discovery of Witches if it receives the majority of votes.

I would love to join too. I live reading books I would not necessarily choose myself. Thanks for doing this!

Can I join you? I love to read and have a hard time picking books on my own.
