Your October Options

Okay, folks. What I want you to do is the following:

The first person to reply is going to quote the whole list, strike through any of the books they've already read and put a green bullet point next to any that they're particularly interested in reading. The next person to post will then quote THAT post and do the same and so on and so forth. If someone has already put a green bullet, please place a second if you too are interested. Please don't put any green bullet points next to books that have been crossed out!

I have a feeling this isn't going to work quite so well as anticipated but lets see how we get on. In my defence, there were far fewer of us when I came up with the plan. :xeyes:

Done, and done. Kinda pleased - this one was actually on my potential book list, so that's worked out nicely.
