Nice to meet you!

1218 Dee, did you comment on the blog? Nothing came through. Why not just enter with a comment here?

1218 Please read the rules for nominating BEFORE you create your post!! And check our bookshelves to be sure you are not nominating something we have already read as a group!

The categories for December and January are:

December = Christmas or winter theme - anything set in winter, or featuring the winter holiday

January = Book theme - any book about books, fictional or non fiction

If you nominate the book, and the book is chosen as a group read, you agree to lead the discussion! Don't worry, it's not hard, and we'll love you all the more for it!

Please do not nominate a book more than once. A book can only be voted on once, so multiple nominations within this thread are not counted.

Only ONE nomination per month per person.

Please be sure to post the title, author, and the month you are nominating it for.

Ideally, you can type it as follows -
August - Room - Emma Donoghue

If your post does not have those three things, it will not be counted.

Are you ready?

I will accept nominations through Monday the 10th. If we get tons of nominations, I may pull the plug on it a little early, so get them in as soon as you can!

Once I close nominations I will create the polls and let you know when it is time to vote!

Hit us with your best noms!

**Important note: At no time is it acceptable for an author to nominate one of his/her own books for the monthly group read. Likewise, it is not acceptable to "push" nominations or votes within this group. It also follows that "a nomination for a nomination" is not acceptable. If I suspect a push, or inappropriate actions have taken place within the group read nominations or votes, I reserve the right to deem those nominations or votes as ineligible.

I'm sure she'll pop in shortly to get the discussion going, but in the meantime, feel free to chat amongst yourselves about the book....

1218 OK guys, I'll be at work all day tomorrow, Giano's last day here with us, so I'm going to do my thank you now.


I want to thank you so much for taking the time to hang with us all week and share your thoughts and insights on your book, taking our questions and even throwing out some of your own!

I hope you enjoyed yourself as much as we've enjoying having you here!!!

1218 Giano, if someone picked up the movie rights, and gave you first choice on who would star in the film... who'd be your dream cast?

1218 (By the way, for what its worth, it's my opinion that YA is being read more often by adult women than it is by the actual audience its intended for...)!
