And the October Book Club selection is…

The polls have closed, and this month was an intensely close battle! But just barely, Jeanette Winterson‘s Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? has come out on top.

Mean Little Deaf Queer, however, was a very close second, and if you still want to read it, by all means do. I’ll open up a discussion thread on the Goodreads group for it, as well as one for Inferno.

Also, another reminder that in addition to the Goodreads group, we have a Tumblr you can follow to read or submit random quotes and thoughts throughout the month.

I’ll post the official discussion post here on AfterEllen on the last Monday of the month, October 29th.

And finally, another reminder that I’m going to be watching and tweeting the miniseries of Tipping the Velvet this Monday, October 1st, at 7:00 PM PST. You can follow along with me (@daffodilly) with the hash tag #TipThatVelvet, if you want to join!

But for now, once again, happy queer reading!
