Happy holidays!!! It's time for the December and January group read nominations!
Remember the rules:
1) Nominate up to 2 books that you would like to read.
2) Second as many books as you like.
3) All books that receive a second will go into the voting. The web site for voting will be posted on this string when the nominations are over. You can vote for as many books as you like in the poll. If necessary, we will have an elimination poll of the books that get the most votes.
Nominations for books will take place for the next week and will close at midnight, Sunday, November 13th. Have fun and enjoy.
I'll nominate two from my TBR pile--The Inheritance of Loss and Pamela.
I'm looking forward to your nominations.
Also, be sure to check out the string for the 1001 November Group Read, Schindler's Ark.
I've already read Return of the Soldier, but I'm speaking up to say it's one of the best books I've read in the last five years. I read it at university, and everyone in my class liked it (I think there were about 40 of us).
I can second Oscar and Lucinda. If I want to join the group reads, I'm a bit limited here to what I've got in terms of nominations or seconds. No way to get books in the middle of the Highlands of Papua New Guinea... well not without difficulty or expense that I'd rather do without.
I'll second The Inheritance of Loss and I'll nominate Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides.

Please vote for as many books as you like, but vote only once. Thanks for participating in the group read. I hope your favorite gets selected.
I failed to mention previously that the poll will close as of midnight Monday, November 21st.
OK. Try this one. I never realized reading could make you pull your hair out!!
The poll is over and the winners are Empire of the Sun and The Inheritance of Loss. Since Empire of the Sun got the most votes, I will put up a thread for that book on December 1st. Thanks for participating in the 1001 Group Read process. If your favorite didn't win, there will be more group reads in the future. Happy reading!!
