    no but really what is a "Tampa"

    I've heard of it but I still have questions
    The word "Tampa" may mean "sticks of fire" in the language of the Calusa, a Native American tribe that once lived south of today's Tampa Bay. This might be a reference to the many lightning strikes that the area receives during the summer months. Other historians claim the name means "the place to gather sticks".[21] Toponymist George R. Stewart writes that the name was the result of a miscommunication between the Spanish and the Indians, the Indian word being "itimpi", meaning simply "near it".[22] The name first appears in the "Memoir" of Hernando de Escalante Fontaneda (1575), who had spent 17 years as a Calusa captive. He calls it "Tanpa" and describes it as an important Calusa town. While "Tanpa" may be the basis for the modern name "Tampa", archaeologist Jerald Milanich places the Calusa village of Tanpa at the mouth of Charlotte Harbor, the original "Bay of Tanpa". A later Spanish expedition did not notice Charlotte Harbor while sailing north along the west coast of Florida and assumed that the current Tampa Bay was the bay they sought. The name was accidentally transferred north.[23] Map makers were using the term Bay or Bahia Tampa as early as 1695.[24]

    People from Tampa are known as "Tampans" or "Tampanians". Local authorities consulted by Michael Kruse of the Tampa Bay Times suggest that "Tampan" was historically more common, while "Tampanian" became popular when the former term came to be seen as a potential insult.[5] Latin Americans from Tampa are known as "tampeños", or "tampeñas" for females. These terms of Spanish origin emerged after 1900 for the immigrant communities in West Tampa and Ybor City. The tampeño, or "Tampa Latin", community is a mix of Cuban, Italian, Spanish, and American influences, with Cuban influence being dominant.[5][25][26]

    don't tell him what to do

    that's not how democracy works

    if he doesn't want to vote he doesn't have to

    stop imposing your desire for everyone to vote for the lesser of two evils

    Some people are only going to want to participate in the thread about the book and not read the book itself, and we don't want to spoil them on the book so we need to have a strict spoiler policy to keep discussion of the book and discussion of the thread separate.

    You don't have to revote. I don't have a link on mobile but I can tell you that the city and the city and the water knife are tied with 8 and the dark currents is right behind with 7.

    If you were looking at cheapest option, both books are $12 on Kindle, but The Water Knife is $9.52 in paperback while The City & the City is $11.11.

    Or we could do a runoff or a coin flip.
