I think I might be up for this. Not sure how I missed this thread last week when you first posted it.

One thing I want to keep in mind: what's a fair price point for everyone in obtaining a new/used copy of whatever book I decide to choose for the first month?

I would like the books to at least have a digital version, since it's easier for me to acquire them. (Not having is not a dealbreaker, though. Foreign books are not taxed, I can import them for cheap.)

Ok, I added a poll to the OP. Go ahead and check out each one a little bit and then vote between now and Saturday...

I have a idea- a I or ebook club and a hard copy club.
Also I'm on but will not be able to search or most likely buy thins off amazon because too busy and such. Now if I can find a copy at half price books I will pick it up etc

They all sound interesting, but I put my vote in for Extra Lives.

Also, while I was searching out the books, I came across this, which I think might be an interesting consideration for another time.

I read Extra Lives a while back. I didn't think it was all that. Certainly interesting, some musings on current games, but nothing very special.

Reality is Broken is in my amazon wishlist. I'd also be up for this book. I've been meaning to read it for awhile.
