What We Didn’t Choose

July 2017 – What We Didn’t Choose

This year we experimented with having each member bring in three book choices when it was their turn to present options. These included one classic, one new release, and one free choice. To finish out the year’s book choices, we chose to pick a second chance from each of our three categories. Because we were also such a small group this time, each person picked two books per category which allowed us to avoid ties and runoff votes.

June 2016 – What We Didn’t Choose

We did things a little differently in choosing the rest of the year’s books. We each brought in a few choices on our to read lists and then each dispersed 5 votes for the 5 books we wanted to read the most. Here are the results.
