I shouldn't have skimmed the description. I saw "soccer moms" and swing voters and got the wrong idea. But yeah, that... that sounds pretty interesting too. Excuse me, I'm going to go die of embarrassment now.

I will second Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed and say that I heard good things about Jared Diamond's other book, Guns, Germs, & Steel.

DaleTremont wrote:The World Without Us sounds pretty neat. There's a science fiction book called "Earth Abides" about the world after humanity is all but wiped out and has some beautiful passages on the way nature slowly takes over the remnants of civilization (but I digress.)

Would anyone be up for Collapse? I haven't read it but I've heard it's incredible. Basically about the collapse of civilizations and what leads to it.

Of course there's also.....Easy Riders, Raging Bulls



All three tickle me. I thought we'd go with Easy Riders, Raging Bulls - but now the mention of Collapse just changed my preferences, methinks.

Ever since I could spell the word 'cyclical' I've been fascinated by grand historical theories. And we could drag anything into it- from Cicero to Nietzsche to Battlestar Galactica!!! How exciting.

Let's do that one, yes, yes?


But The World Without Us sounds cool too.

I am bumping this because January is almost upon us. Are there any other nominations/seconds for non-fiction books for the January Book of the Month selection? I realize that not many people have logged in today (Christmas hangover?), so I'll wait until Thursday or Friday to put up a poll. Only one poll for the January BotM selection this time, winner take all...

Maui wrote:The Omnivore's Dilemma


A New York Times bestseller that has changed the way readers view the ecology of eating, this revolutionary book by award winner Michael Pollan asks the seemingly simple question: What should we have for dinner? Tracing from source to table each of the food chains that sustain us -- whether industrial or organic, alternative or processed -- he develops a portrait of the American way of eating. The result is a sweeping, surprising exploration of the hungers that have shaped our evolution, and of the profound implications our food choices have for the health of our species and the future of our planet.


I'd read that. Seconded and added.

Bah. But you can never tell. Like there's Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and there's Ulysses. Both monstrously long but I'm betting one would take much less time to read than the other for most people.

All right....I must vote for ERRB, because I really really really wanna discuss it with Zoners who would know about movies/movie history and have many heated debates about what Biskind implies with Star Wars and all the rest!

:-P Actually I haven't even tried reading it yet. Well, I got through two sentences when I was 11. I heard my dad talking about it all the time and wanted to impress him with my reading skillzz. But then I wandered away to watch Power Rangers.

We just need to read ERRB if only to be done with it. It's been in these polls over and over again.
Not that I don't want to read it anyway, but it'd be nice to not have it to kick around for another 2 years.

Excellent point. However, in case you weren't aware, for the next several months (or year, if this is a success) the months are going to be broken into "themes". So if ERRB isn't picked for January's BotM, it won't be eligible unless we do the Film Book month later in the year.

Not written in stone, but these are the ideas for the themes:

January - Non-Fiction
February - Poetry
March - Classic
April - Horror
May - Sci-Fi
June - Feminist Themes
July - Cult/Underground Classics (past and present)
August - Crime/True Crime/Mystery
September - World Literature (great books old and new translated into English)
October - Film books
November - Music (biographies, studies, etc)
December - General round up of the books Zoners read throughout the year with recommendations, reviews, etc

June - Female Authors (any genre)


I wasn't aware but theme months are a great idea-it'll definitely give each nomination cycle a focus that we need. And seeing as I clearly missed the discussion, feel free to tell me to shove off, but maybe we need to change June.

Since they're not written in stone, how about we change the June topic to a book that deals with feminist themes instead of books that just happen to be written by a human being with a vagina. Then I won't have to be offended and rally my Clit Club to protest! :lol:

Yeah, it counts even if you're not participating this month. I'd like people to get into the habit of checking the Book Forum regularly and participating as much as they can. I realize that not everyone can read every BotM we do this year...

I just impulsively voted for The World Without Us. I think I'd find it a comforting idea to read about how it all goes on without our meddling. First I was rooting for Collapse- but now that I've looked it up I think it might depress me in my current state of mind.

Oh and Dale... - I AM going to read Easy Riders, Raging Bulls too... :oops:
I'll sneek some well disguised comments about it in here at some point... (shhhhh).
