Preview Irving’s A Prayer for Owen Meany

A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving WINS the poll from a few days ago with 48% of the votes cast.     According to my stats, 126 total VIEWINGS of that post were tallied but only 25 votes were counted.

The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova won second place with 7 votes, tightly followed by A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini with 6 votes.   My Detachment by Tracy Kidder failed to garner a single affirmation.   (I need a new word for ‘vote’)      I’m sure that’s because Bybee is still on vacation?   She does have a guest post recently if you want to wander over there…

ANYONE WHO WOULD LIKE TO DO A MINI-BOOK-CLUB with me and Vasilly and Jill/Softdrink/FizzyBeverage/FizzyThoughts/Whatzername to read this book, feel free to join in!       Details to follow once they become clear and concrete?

  1. I’M IN!

    I requested it from the library, but if they are too slow I will just buy it because I lurve John Irving.

    (I’d prefer blogging, because my Twitter is pathetic, but then again, maybe it would make me use Twitter better! Up to you :D)

  2. This is gonna be cool!

    And I agree with Jill, we should do it in chapter chunks. I double-checked to make sure my copy was still where it was supposed to be on our shelves – and realized I have 2 different versions, anyways the page numbers do not match up at all! Page 50 in one is like page 107 in the other lol :)
