Hey y'all my internet is still messed up. I'm gonna get a different service but I might be without web for a while. Could one of you keep up with the list and post the top book for next month please. Just make a thread and let us know which one made it on the 24th.

I can only access the interweb with my phone which makes it difficult to do much of anything online.

Shameless plug here - Five Quarters of the Orange only needs two votes to zoom ahead and win the next month's reading vote.  I really would rather read this than Room, so vote if you agree.  Or vote for your other favorite!!

For now it seems like the problem might be solved without changing services but I'm not going to say that for sure yet. It worked fine for a little while the last time they fixed it. Also if a book that I put on the list is close to getting the votes the add one to the number of votes because it won't let me vote for the books that I added. eta except room. I added it because it was suggested early on in the formulation of the group.

The voting system is going to be a little skewed against books that were added after the initial group. Maybe we should wipe the votes once in awhile to level them out, if that's even possible. There were also people voting in the beginning when it was on the CMT board that don't sem to have come down to the basement.

Looks like moving the server worked because the net has worked perfectly since they did that. Anywhoodles gonna address Room in a different thread.

Congrats! I would go batty if I didn't have somewhat reliable internet. Mine's been going out on me occassionally for a few weeks and they can't find the problem but it's down to once or twice every few days and for just a couple minutes so I can cope but it is so annoying to be in the middle of something and suddenly no connection.
