We've decided to do something different for our September read. Instead of simply announcing the book choice, we thought we'd give a bit of the decision making to our fellow readers. So we've chosen 3 books, and now we need you to help us decide which one should be the book club choice for September 2020.

There's 3 books, each from a different genre. One has been on the New York Times bestsellers list for 98 weeks! One of them is a Cozy Mystery, which we know some readers here at TCS enjoy. And one is a psychological thriller.

The poll will run for 7 days, giving everyone time to vote, and then time to acquire the book by September.

Two of the books are currently available as free e-books at Amazon, B&N and KOBO. As free book offers are only on for a limited time, you might want to download them right away, as they may go back to their normal prices before September arrives, or even before the poll closes.

Votes are anonymous, btw, so no one will know who voted, or which book they voted for. Voting does not commit you to reading the book, but of course, we hope you do, as the more readers, the better.

Here are the descriptions for the 3 books.

ARSENIC IN THE AZALEAS by DALE MAYER - COZY MYSTERY - CURRENTLY FREE AT AMAZON, B&N AND
KOBO

I have Where the Crawdads Sing but since it's not a library book, I don't feel any pressing need to read it, so maybe having a book club deadline will encourage me to do it. ;)

MonaLyssa33 MonaLyssa33 : Since you already have "Where the Crawdads Sing", you'll be all set if it becomes our September read. And if another book wins, who knows, we may still choose it for another month down the road.

I have the two freebies on my Kindle now, and I have "Where the Crawdads Sing" (it was a Christmas gift) and have read it, so I am ready to go whatever the choice.

pearl99 pearl99 : that's great that you're all set. And as of now, the choice is unclear, as we have a tie. The poll closes in less than 48 hours so hopefully the tie will be broken by then.

After a close vote, including a couple ties, the poll has now closed and the winner has been chosen.

So our September 2020 Book of the Month read will be Arsenic in the Azaleas by
Dale Mayer

The e-book version is currently still FREE at AMAZON, B&N AND KOBO so if you haven't downloaded it yet, it's not too late.

Thanks to everyone who voted. Even if the book you voted for didn't win, hope you will consider joining us in September.
