I'm a stubborn **** who dislikes not having complete freedom to decide what to read, so I'm a bit hesitant about joining, but it sounds fun. And your choice of book intrigues me so that's tempting. I think if there's enough interest I'm in.

Same. Although I am just now finishing a book and have no particular idea about what I want to read next so it's a good moment. Plus, Invisible cities has been on my to read list for almost 10 years now so it might be the right time to dive in (even though I didn't like If on a winter's night...).

My book for the vote is Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino
Sure. Though I'd be hesitant to recommend anything here I'm down with reading anything.

Awesome. Ideally everyone would put in an option so that we can have a diverse poll to vote on for the first round, but it doesn't have to be a requirement. I can throw in a few extra ones if needed.

So far we have:

I'll check that dictionary, but in the meantime I'm impressed - as is everyone else in the world - by your eloquence, obvious accomplishments and success, and the evidence of your blazingly high intelligence.
