My vote is for The Other Boleyn Girl, because I already own a copy and have been meaning to read it but just haven't gotten around to it. I haven't heard anything about the other possible selections, but I'm sure any would be a good read.

I vote for- The Other Boleyn Girl.
I have never read this book, but I have seen the movie and I really enjoyed it! I bet the book is better than the movie (because lets be honest...the book is ALWAYS better than the movie). When I finish the book I am currently reading, I am going to read The Other Boleyn Girl.

Such a fun thing you have started. Good Luck!!!

Me,Me, Me! It would look so cute in my new kitchen. I vote on The marriage plot.
Grandma I am so sad about Tico, and I know you and Grandpa are too. Tico was a great little dog and lived a good life. I can't think of a better life for a dog, than living out in Torrey, chasing rodents ;) I just got my internet hooked up and read the news. Beau will be sad because it was his turn to do the Wiener float. I love you and will call soon. I have a a beast of a cold.
