My intention is to get group reads selected with advance notice, since we may choose different methods of acquiring the monthly group read title, so sorry to stack up polls on you all.

Please make a suggestion for the May group read theme.

Note: I am looking for themes not books. If you want to clarify your choice with a definition, that is great.

The poll will go up on March 20th.

*Historical Warriors
*Cold War Espionage
*Antiheroic Lead Character
*High Tech Treasure Hunting Adventure
*Warriors of Myths and Ancient Legends

How about Mythic warriors as in Cuchulain (or Cú Chulainn), Brian Boru or the Icelandic myths (of course including novels based on these heroes).

Thanks for the nominations. For those who still want to make one, this is the final day. The poll goes up tomorrow, after midnight is fair game for me too create the poll.

Great suggestion and I know a good book like that.
