Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Will you be joining the Mixmaster Online Book Club for its inaugural selection? Make sure you make your opinion known by voting for the book you want to read.

As of right now, Erik Larson's historical In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin is leading the pack, with Tina Fey's memoir Bossypants pulling up a close second. David Foster Wallace's posthumous release, musician Steve Earle's debut novel, and actor/director Albert Brooks' critical darling 2030: The Real Story of What Happens to America are close to a three-way tie at the bottom of the list.

If your choice isn't winning, make sure you speak now. Or, if you're not even going to read with us, and you just really want to influence some strangers' habits of leisure, click away accordingly.

Now, go vote!

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
