OK. :) You're in.


Wastrel | 30 comments I know I don't contribute much to this group, but I'd be happy to nominate for October fantasy - the advantage of never getting around to reading as much as I'd like is that I've got plenty of interesting books I want to read/re-read, and I could do with the company...


Michael | 50 comments Happy to do September SF.
Mike

Chance Maree I'll take the science fiction month after Greg, or in May, if that is still open for Science Fiction.


Greg (Geemont) | 443 comments I'll take the next open science fiction.

We do the nominations a few months ahead - I was actually coming to update the list and make a call for volunteers. You can have Fantasy nominations for February if you like.

I'll probably send you a reminder message asking for your nominations around October 25th or something like that and we'll vote in November ...


Ben Rowe (benwickens) | 81 comments I see there is noone down for October - I can do it if you are needing someone - happy either way.

Our Greg came to me with an idea for volunteer nominations by members - instead of listing specific books, giving plot synopses and voting on them. I like this idea and thought it would be fun to do next month to mix things up again. So fun.

And, In the process of trying new things, I accidentally switched months for volunteer nomination genres .. whoopsies ....

So, August, Sept. and Oct are open for volunteers. If you want to volunteer, now's your chance to get on the list ... If you want to try something new, then let me know your idea - I'm game ...


Lee Moore Sounds good!

Geoffrey (Geoffreys) | 908 comments Mod
How about May Fantasy? We're voting on March Now. May Fantasy will be voted on In March, though ...


Lee Moore I'll take March-Fantasy.

Mallory Heart Reviews (Ever-Haunted_Ever-Reader) | 20 comments I'd like April-Science Fiction:)


Greg (Geemont) | 443 comments You can always threaten to assign me a month if you don't get any volunteers.


message 12: by Geoffrey, The One, The Only (new)

Geoffrey (Geoffreys) | 908 comments Mod
OK, you're in. I'm probably going to take one (at least one) but I'll wait until others have taken their spots.

I'll take February Science Fiction.

I was looking at the runners up list from the past few polls and decided the end of the year would be good for another runners up vote ... unless anyone objects. :)

Geoffrey (Geoffreys) | 908 comments Mod
Perfect. I've added you both onto the schedule.


Charles (NogDog) I'm up for doing a selection set again whenever you need. I can do October (my birthday month ;-) ).


Mallory Heart Reviews (Ever-Haunted_Ever-Reader) | 20 comments I'd like to take September-Fantasy (my birthday month LOL)


Greg (Geemont) | 443 comments Works for me.

Greg (Geemont) | 443 comments I did Fantasy in March, but I'd like to pick for science fiction.

I was looking through the list and the threads and I saw that I skipped a couple people who volunteered by mistake and then there were a couple who volunteered in January and then never came back to our little group ... So, I got a wild hair and decided to start this list over.

Volunteer spots are now open. Pick a month and let me know. I'll be asking about 2 months ahead of time for your list so whoever volunteers for July can start making their list right away ...

So, this is the thread for the beginning of the month book nominations:

1. You volunteer to be a selector and at the same time pick whether you're volunteering for a Fantasy or Science Fiction Month.
2. Anyone can volunteer, of course, and volunteer more than once - just don't get piggy.
3. In this thread, I'll post a list of nominees for specific months as well as remind you a few weeks ahead of time.
4. The list will be 3 or 4 books(no more than 5 for you overachievers) from different authors and where at least one of the books is less than 5 years old.
5. If no one volunteers for a particular month, we'll just wing it ...

Then we'll all still vote on them a week before month's end ...
