Important notice for the AE Book Club. 

Since there was a tie between Fords' The Last King and Diamonds Guns, Germs and Steel (besides that one late vote Tongue).  We have decided to do both books for Aprils book club discussion.

Dawn will be heading up the discussion for The Last King and i will be heading up the discussion on Guns, Germs and Steel.  And if you wish, you may read both books and participate in both discussions. 

The discussion will begin on April the 30th. 

Some facts for the more organized reader, Guns, Germs and Steel is approximately 480 pages in length, given the 30 day time span we have for reading, one may have to read about 16 pages a day in order to finish by the end of the month Tongue.  For The Last King, it weighs in at about 432 pages, so one would have to read 14.4 pages per day Tongue.

Also, a quick reminder, my PM inbox is always open to book ideas for the upcoming months selection!  So if you have an interesting book you would like to see discussed or shared with us drop me a PM! 

Happy reading everybody!
