message 1: by Trisha (new)

Trisha It's that time again! Let's come up with some nominations for the next 2-3 months! Please be sure to skim through our bookshelf to see what we have already read. Also, you are more than welcome to read past books and post comments!

For nominations, please suggest a title for "Old school classic" and "Contemporary Classic". At the end of the week I will set up a poll for votes. We always have such great suggestions, I can't wait to see what people suggest this time!

Jenny (JennyC89) I would like to nominate King Lear by William Shakespeare for another really Old School Classic. I'll think about my Contemporary Classic nomination.

Wow! Lolo, that is a great list.


message 4: by Trisha (new)

Trisha Wow, that's quite a list! Just make sure that, for future nominations, you limit it to 1-2 suggestions each, that way we are not overwhelmed with choices on the polls.
