Sorry guys I am a little late but we will make this short and sweet. What theme do you want for Nov? I say we have one book of our choosing and other from our winning "theme"

http://holidayinsights.com/moreholida...

I nominated Thanksgiving. We can choose a book about thankfulness or food???

Start nominating!!!


message 2: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth (crescent_gaia) I'm going to second the theme of Thanksgiving as well. I know it's National Novel Writing Month, but it's been Thanksgiving month and the start of holidays for longer.


message 3: by Katie (new)

Katie Russell | 139 comments I was going to say Native American partically because of thanksgiving and because there are also two days devoved to Native Americans in the month.


message 4: by Liz (new)

Liz This is a time of year for family to get together & celebrate, so I was thinking a Family Saga (ie. East of Eden, The Thorn Birds . . . )


message 5: by Silver (new)

Silver I am intrigued by the idea of Aviation History


message 6: by Vicki (new)

Vicki | 3 comments Native American month for fall and thanksgiving :)


message 7: by April (new)

April  (AprilJD) | 14 comments I just joined but I really like the idea of an Aviation History theme. :)


message 8: by Molly (new)

Molly (mollystoddart) I like the ideas of thanksgiving or a family story.


message 9: by Anna (new)

Anna Anderson (AnnaAnderson) | 130 comments I like the idea of a family story b/c of the time of year and how much time we usually spend with family during Nov. and December. I just finished a great read with interesting family dynamics that will have you laughing out loud and then a few pages later crying (or at least that is what I did) called Henry's Sisters. I am not saying that that is what we should read for Nov., I am just trying to push a great read.

Joan Wise (joan46) | 49 comments I like the idea Native American month for fall and Thanksgiving or historical pilgrim story.


message 11: by Aly (new)

Aly (Alygator) | 204 comments Hmmm... I nominate the theme of FOOD!! Cuz it's Thanksgiving and we all eat way too much of it LOL.


message 12: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer (Misskitty1026) | 105 comments i say food as well :)

Well I guess it's safe to say that Turkey day can incorporate family, food, and native americans.


message 14: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth (crescent_gaia) And a really big parade. ^_~


message 15: by Hildur (new)

Hildur (bokahaus) I vote for food theme!


message 16: by Anna (new)

Anna Anderson (AnnaAnderson) | 130 comments food and family together would make for a good book!


message 17: by Lyn (Readinghearts) (last edited Oct 19, 2010 11:52AM) (new)

Lyn (Readinghearts) (lsmeadows) November has Veteran's Day in the US, so we could go that route, but it is also Adoption Month, so I am going to nominate the theme of Adoption

Start nominating books for our Thanksgiving theme which may include food, Native American, family, Turkeys...??? Whatever you wish.

Also nominate a second book of your choice for category 2!


message 20: by April (new)

April  (AprilJD) | 14 comments Thanksgiving - Empire of the Summer Moon by S.C. Gwynne by S.C. Gwynne

My Choice - Room A Novel by Emma Donoghue by Emma Donoghue


message 21: by Hildur (new)

Hildur (bokahaus) For the thanksgiving (food) theme I would like to nominate Heartburn by Nora Ephron.

For the 2nd theme I would like to nominate The Hot Zone: A Terrifying True Story by Richard Preston. It gets very good reviews.


message 22: by Anna (new)

Anna Anderson (AnnaAnderson) | 130 comments Heartburn sounds like a good food theme book and then there is Comfort Food by kate Jacobs. I don't have a second opinion yet b/c there are soooooo many to choose from. I have been wanting to read New York by Edward Rutherford , which is about the founding of New York and it moves through the centuries up to current time. It is supposed to be really good! So I guess that is my second choice. It is also now out in paperback which helps b/c it is a whopper, I will admit!


message 23: by Joan (new)

Joan Wise (joan46) | 49 comments For the Thanksgiving theme - The Peaceable Kingdom by Jan de Hartog.

My second choice - New York by Edward Rutherfurd.


message 24: by Anna (new)

Anna Anderson (AnnaAnderson) | 130 comments Hey thanks for seconding my second choice Joan!


message 25: by Silver (new)

Silver For Thanksgiving I nominate The Beet Queen

For my choice I nominate The Bonesetter's Daughter


message 26: by Joan (new)

Joan Wise (joan46) | 49 comments Your welcome Anna - I love his books and New York has been in my TBR pile for awhile!


message 27: by Anna (new)

Anna Anderson (AnnaAnderson) | 130 comments Silver, I have both of those on my TBR list as well. Of course, my TBR list is 3000+ titles, so it is rare to find one not on there, hee, hee, hee :-)

I am starting the polls tomorrow so get them in while you can...


Lyn (Readinghearts) (lsmeadows) I am having a hard time coming up with something for the Thanksgiving theme, but for category 2 I will nominate: Hidden Wives by Claire Avery


message 32: by Katie (new)

Katie Russell | 139 comments I nominate the Absoultely true Diary of a Part Time Indain as my first book and The Case of the missing servant as my second.

Aww. The wait's not too bad at my library but I can come up with a better second choice if that would help.

Not at all I will just have to buy it LOL


message 35: by Hildur (new)

Hildur (bokahaus) I agree on Room being a very good nomination, but it might also be a bit hard for me to get. It's something that will just be worked out if that book gets voted as next months' read


message 36: by Donna, The Pusher (new)

Donna (DFiggz) | 3100 comments Mod
Thankls for all your nominations and votes. The polls are in and the winners are:

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie

and

Little Bee by Chris Cleave


message 37: by Hildur (new)

Hildur (bokahaus) I don't know if I'll be able to get the Indian one but I'll probably get Little Bee.


message 38: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (SaRaH23L) I'm planning to read Little Bee!


message 39: by Donna, The Pusher (new)

Donna (DFiggz) | 3100 comments Mod
My book club at work is reading it now so I am thankful that it won!


message 40: by Donna, The Pusher (new)

Donna (DFiggz) | 3100 comments Mod
PS I also own the Indian one and it is considered a YA so it makes for quick reading.


message 41: by Katie (new)

Katie Russell | 139 comments I will certainly read Little Bee and have already read The Absoultely True Diary of a Part Time Indain.


message 42: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (SarahSaysRead) Oooo I read Little Bee and liked it. Might look into that Indian one...
