Announcement: Girl on Book Action reader polls!

What should Doomwench read next?

As some of you know, I have a terrible time with picking what book to read next. So I thought to myself, “how can I make other people decide for me?” and with the beginning of this joint-venture blog I suddenly had an answer! I’ll make our handful of devoted readers pick books for me!

Here’s the deal:

Once a month (possibly more if I happen to be reading A LOT), I’ll put up a poll on the blog with 3 or 4 books to choose from, you vote for the one you want to see me review and the book with the most votes gets moved to the top of my to-be-read pile, meaning it’s the next non-academia related book I read. I’ll be pulling the choices from both my to-be-read pile and books I’ve been meaning to re-read, so hopefully there will be some books of interest.

The poll will be open for 1 week and I will post new polls on Saturdays (most likely sporadically) along with my weekly review.

Now go vote! All the cool kids are doing it!


  1. So I think you should read Scarlett Letter as I read it years ago and love the story. Victoria is currently reading it as well. At least in the States it's one of those books that everyone has to read usually in high school or college.

  2. It's looking pretty good for me reading The Scarlett Letter, unless a bunch of people show up and vote for something else in the next 5 days. It's not taught here in school, so yeah, totally missing out on it.
