All the President's Men: not really a novel, is it?

It is a book, but not a novel, Investigative Journalism is more appropiate. I did not see this at first, so it is up to Ed if he wants to keep works of non fiction like this one. Otherwise, there are still some of my other suggestions available to replace it.

Also Peter Pan was originally a play, altought the author himself later adapted it as a novel.

Sorry. My bad. I did not catch it either.

Surely Dan Brown will get a lot of votes, that's why I go for Anthony Burgess.

Yes it has......One must have patience.
Been waiting on "B"
"C" is done but "D" is awaiting "B" to go live, otherwise I'll abandon the idea.
Hope this goes soon, but it is awards season!!!
