Dictionary Definition : Kelsey-- Frequently called "Kels," this female specimen of Homo Sapiens belongs to the Literary Cabinet universe. Although she is a young member, she has shown her maturity to be above other species, sometimes. "Kelsey" can behave quite crazy in her own right. One of her most noticeable traits is paranoia and knowledge of trolls.

The next buddy read won't be for a few weeks, so don't panic. I just wanted to have plenty of time for discussion on what book everyone would like to read, because I know many people will be off later this month and would like to participate, but may not visit the site very often right now.
I figured we could simply nominate books here, and then a bit later vote on them in a poll (where you can vote for more than one book) in another thread, where we can then decide when to read the winning book.

Dictionary Definition : Laura: Also known as "Solveig", her internet pseudonym, this female specimen of Homo Sapiens founded the Literary Cabinet world. One can spot "Laura," by the fun she has grading papers and drinking coffee, with triple coffee consumption ever since she quit smoking. Like another species, Homo Sapiens Zarasahanous, she enjoys picking at the extreme Twilight fans. This specimen is particularly fond of procrastinating, as most of the other species of the Literary Cabinet Universe are.

I've tried Dorian Gray and hated it, but I have The Unbearable Lightness of Being on my list anyway, so I'd go along with that.

My other nominations are:

Kazuo Ishiguro, When we were orphans
Kurt Tucholsky, Castle Gripsholm
Franz Kafka, The Trial
Theodor Storm, The Rider on the White Horse
E.A. Poe, The Murders in the Rue Morgue

Dictionary Definition : Dictionary Definition: Paul-One of the few male LC creatures known to exist, this specimen is one of the eldest in the LC universe. This specimen is known to work long hours but still makes time to commingle with fellow LC denizens. This being has a peculiar sense of humor and has been observed to shun smilies, although this aversion has been lessening as of late.

This is all new material for me. I think I read the Poe story a long time ago, but I'm willing to give it a go again if that is the one chosen. Either way, hopefully others will put in their input as to what they want to read next.

Dictionary Definition : Tourterelle--a unique specimen of the female gender of Homo Sapiens that exhibits behaviors such as excessive procrastination, chocolate creation (in direct contradiction to the Law of Conservation of Matter), and overall insanity. Common names include Nicholle, CQ (Chocolate Queen), Crackhead, and Miss Martini Maniac. Lately, this individual has reportedly been seen dancing in a banana costume and drinking an excessive amount of martinis.

Dictionary Definition : Rodent - Homo Rodentiensis is a typical LC creature. Always ready to laugh about stupidity, this being has long occupied a special moderator status on the LC. As one of the very few LC creatures who actually can get and keep a partner, she is the object of constant envy. Though madness is not part of the average Rodents characteristics, this particular feature can at times be subject to change, especially when striken by severe sleep deprivation.

I nominate Anne of Green Gables (having read this numerous time I feel I am cheating, but having 3 kids means I don't have time to read something I actually have to pay attention to.)

I also vote for Anne of Green Gables.

Dictionary Definition : Laura: Also known as "Solveig", her internet pseudonym, this female specimen of Homo Sapiens founded the Literary Cabinet world. One can spot "Laura," by the fun she has grading papers and drinking coffee, with triple coffee consumption ever since she quit smoking. Like another species, Homo Sapiens Zarasahanous, she enjoys picking at the extreme Twilight fans. This specimen is particularly fond of procrastinating, as most of the other species of the Literary Cabinet Universe are.

By Nick Hornby or by Lynn Barber?

By the way, I am preparing a vote. Since there are so many different books, it'll be multiple choice this time.

Does "The Three Musketeers" by Dumas float anyone's boat?

If there are no more nominations within 24 hours, I'll close the thread and open a vote. Is that d'accord?
