    I think I might want to read that in the future--if it's not too heavy handed. I don't like books about parenting written by non-parents.

    But I'm still voting Animal Farm for this read.

    That's a very difficult choice..... But I have to go with 1984 since it's such a harbinger and I have to admit I haven't read much of Atlas.

    I haven't read 1984.. I thought about buying it, but luckily I'm just living through it... Time saved!

    1984. I've read it 3 times, two of which were this year, so I'm better equipped to talk about that than the others.
    Nothing helps a bad mood like spreading it around.

    I chose Atlas Shrugged, just because I'm currently reading it and I'm 3/4's the way through. Hoping to finish it this weekend.

    Congrats to you. That's one heck of a read. I'm a slow reader....thinking about getting it on tape to listen to when I'm driving.
