As far as discussion goes, I think it and The Life of Pi, and it sounds like the CS Lewis/Freud book are probably the most enabling--there's a legitimate tension in all of them which can be wrestled with, debated, and processed. The Kite Runner, while certainly a good and exciting (horrifying?) read, I think, will take a bit more work. Not that that's a bad thing.
BTW, off topic, Doug--True Grit definitely cured me of the chick flickishness of Bride and Prejudice--now I need to add another Dreyer to my queue!

If none of these pull ahead by Monday, we can handle it a couple of ways - either hold a tie-breaker poll, or have a general discussion for a day or two to decide on a winner. Assuming that these parts'll be quiet between Christmas and New Year's, I'll plan on setting up a "featured discussion" thread shortly after Jan. 1.

And, Mark -- or kenmorefield -- perhaps we should close this topic and start a new poll? Maybe?
I'm not sure I know how to close a topic, but I'll be happy to do so if given instructions.
I opened this one for Mark when he was starting last discussion because he had a hard time making a poll.

I'll throw in an extra vote for The Meaning of Jesus, since it's the one book whose authors I've interviewed. style_emoticons/default/smile.gif
Yeah I would like to discuss the Borg/Wright differences.
