New poll up, concerning books for possible future reviews

It's been a little over a month since the last poll expired (results below), so I decided to add a new one, seeing which works might interest readers.  Depending on my time in April (state tests toward the end of the month will mean even more work to do after I finally get home each late night), I will try to review the top 3-4 selections.  Some might seem more ridiculous than others, but I seriously will read the works listed (I do own all but one of those books...well, maybe two, I suppose) if there are enough votes to do so.

Curious to see how cruel my readers are... ;)

100 years of solitude has been sitting on one of my bookshelves for years. If you do decide to review it, please announce it a few weeks in advance - I'm curious how my opinion of a recently read book would match a reviewer's take.

I am skeptical that squirrel erotica exists.... I'd look online but it sounds like some sort of forbidden knowledge that would corrupt the soul...
