Update on PamF vote for Pulitzer Books

Finalists for Pulitzer Prize - all in paperback now, and Kindle:
The Pale King, by David Foster Wallace is 592 pages.
Swamplandia, by Karen Russell is 416 pages
Train Dreams, Denis Johnson is 128 pages.


All sound interesting, so my vote is to take Frank's suggestion.

However, Since my previous post (for those who read it) I changed my mind about when to do this. I say let's plug it in next time our calendar is light on volunteer nominators - and select One to read.
