New books, new date

Our official reading list now has 3 more titles, for a total of 7--over there on the right. Notice also that I've changed the date of the discussion! The actual annoucement of award happens late enough this year that we can have the mock discussion after the holiday season, instead of before. I hope to add one more title to the list before Thanksgiving, then call it "complete"...though leaving room for one or two late arriving contenders.

I finished Victory and found it had the same problem as Bread and Roses Too...that by splitting the story between two characters (to broaden the audience?), neither character ever came fully to life. In the case of Victory, Sam has by far the more interesting story, and the tie to the present-day through Molly weakens the tension.
