I just felt compelled to pick up a new one a propos du Dracula The review in that link just came out, and I'm itching to buy that book. Amazon's reviews are just as positive. Anyone with me?

Actually I would feel like doing something completely different. But I am not a native english speaker, so someone else should pick the book

Ooo I have such a history with this book. It completely influenced me for a while there, and by overcoming its many arguments I learnt to think in higher levels, which is also of course in great part thanks to that book. It's been so long since I last read it. Let's do it? Guys, this is a seriously engaging book. You will get passionate about its arguments (positively and/or negatively) but the story itself is a thrill.

Funny, i have Ishmael on the list of the next batch of books i get. Heard nothing but good things about it and it seems the type i like - makes you think, isn't a closed narrow (albeit those can be engaging as well) waltz through the story.

I'll be back home in less than two weeks. I really had no time to get into Dracula, but I'm definitely joining in the new one, whatever you guys end up going with. :D

So is the situation still "deciding next book" or is certain now?

I found a copy of Ishmael while I was randomly looking through some shelves and read a few pages. It already looks interesting to me.
