Time to nominate our group read for February! Since it's the start of the new year, the only author excempt from nomination is the one for our January read, Anna Schmidt. Once six months are past, she'll be back in the running again.

Rules:
1. Any Amish-themed novel is eligible.
2. One nomination per person.
3. If two people nominate the same book, each person's vote counts. So the book will feature twice in the list to give each vote an equal chance.
4. Nominations are open from the 1st until the 14th of the month, and Diane will let us know which book has won on the 15th.
5. The winning book is chosen using Random.org to make it completely fair.
6. Please don't nominate a book we have already read. You can see our list of previous group reads here: http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/4...
7. Only nominate the first book in a series UNLESS we have already read #1 (see above link). In this case, #2 is then eligible for nomination!

Start nominating!

Nominations so far:
1. Running Around (And Such) by Linda Byler (Rachel)
2. Levis Will by W. Dale Cramer (Barbara Ann)
3. The Choice by Suzanne Woods Fisher (Lorie)
4. The Keeper: A Novel by Suzanne Woods Fisher (Rebecca)
5. A Wedding Quilt for Ella by Jerry S. Eicher (Diane)
6. Leah's Choice by Marta Perry (Kate)
7. A Wedding Quilt for Ella by Jerry S. Eicher (Tina)
8. Bygones by Kim Vogel Sawyer (Camille)
9. Leah's Choice by Marta Perry (Jessica)
10. Levis Will by W. Dale Cramer (Jeanne)
