We're about two weeks from finishing Claire North's 84K.

What should the next book we read be? List 3 books you're interested in.

We've been discussing reading a Ursula K LeGuin book but feel free to nominate something else.

Three nominations for Left hand if Darkness then.

Please feel free to pitch alternatives we can discuss and perhaps read after what ever book we pick.

I mean I think most people have read it but I'd like to throw The Library at Mount Char for future consideration. It's not very long and it is pretty ace.

I'm not a part of this exclusive club, but I've arrived at The Left Hand Of Darkness in my collected Hainish cycle.

So, that.

I'm reading an omnibus collection of Le Guin's Hainish books. I've just reached TLHOD in that omnibus.

Well, then you should wait for us.

We'll probably start the next book September 30th.

Can't find TLHOD anywhere and I'm loathe to buy it as it's a wee bit expensive, relatively speaking. May have to use an Audible credit...

I wasn't able to find Library at Mount Char at reasonable money anywhere, but I'll second the reco cause of all the hype.

I've read Wizard of Earthsea but it's really short so will second it as well.

As for a reco from me:
