From the Desk of Jen Chaney
Regular members of the "Lost" Book Club are undoubtedly immersed in our November selection, "A Brief History of Time." And they are probably thinking, "Liz, Jen, what are you trying to do to us? This is a book about science. And the speed of light. And the theory of relativity. It hurts our brains. And none of it explains how polar bears could end up on a tropical island, or whether 'Lost' will even come back if the writers' strike continues. I could choose something better than this for the 'Lost' Book Club."
To which Liz and I say: Oh, YEAH?
Um, that's cool. Go ahead. Seriously.
As a holiday season gift to all of you loyal "Losties," December's book will be readers' choice. From now until Wednesday, Nov. 21, please post any and all suggestions for the next selection in the comments section of this here blog post. Liz and I will select five from the list, then publish a poll on Monday, Nov. 26 that allows readers to vote for their favorite. The winner will be announced during our mind-busting discussion of "A Brief History of Time" on Wednesday, Nov. 28 at noon.
Before you start nominating any crazy 'ol thing, please remember the rules. The book must be referenced in an episode of "Lost," or relevant to the "Lost" universe. (For example, "Watchmen" -- our September selection -- was never mentioned on the show, but has been cited by co-creator Damon Lindelof as a crucial, inspirational work.) If you need some ideas, this handy Lostpedia page may be helpful.
Now make like Oprah and choose a great read.
