Amazingly it is time for another group read selection!

Please nominate up to two books you'd like to have as a group read in October and November 2019, and second as many nominated books as you like.

There will be a poll to select the two books in about a week.

October: The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner

I'll second the Confessions of a Justified Sinner, and will nominate Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey. I can't be the only person who hasn't read this Jane Austen! On a more obscure note, will also nominate War with the Newts.

Please may I nominate The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte and Tom Jones by Henry Fielding. Not that I'll finish Tom Jones in a month, of course, but if it was November, I could at least start early, like in a handicap race when the slowest is given a head start.

I'll third The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner. I heard a reference to this somewhere recently, but I can't remember where!

War with the Newts sounds good, so I'll third that one as well.

I've wanted to read The Counterfeiters for a long time, so I'll second that.

I really appreciate both the group reads and the group challenges. Sometimes I have a hard time choosing what to read and these give me direction and goals. Thank you all for doing this!

Two books scored six votes: Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner, and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. These will be our group reads for October and November respectively and I’ll set up new threads at the start of each month.
