Results of the Virtual Book Club Vote

The votes are in! The Virtual Book Club has picked Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford. Coming in a close second, and now a now on reserve for me at the library is Blue Like Jazz by Donald Miller. Laura from the Calico Critic's comment was the one that convinced me to read it.

And what did the Bookies book club choose? They also chose Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet!
