This is the nominations thread for our September monthly read of 2013.

As this is the only group read category this month, nominations are open to all writers of all genres. As usual there is only one nomination per member.

This thread will remain open until midnight of August 25, Irish time, after which the poll will be assembled for voting to begin.

Declan. :)

Brian O'Sullivan | 280 comments Hurray! First in. I'd like to nominate 'The Gamal' by Ciaran Collins. Haven't read it yet but it looked interesting when I saw it on the shelves last time I was home. Review here: http://www.theguardian.com/books/2013...

Mr. Owl Third time lucky (I hope!) as I'm nominating the late Iain Banks' "The Wasp Factory" again:

I'm agreeing with Allan (surprise:) - will lurk and then vote.

Of course this monthly read can be anything:) Again, I'm lurking. I'm anticipating a busy month with the semester starting and I am not sure I can commit to reading s.t. I nominate.

Our group will still be here whenever you find the time, Karen. We'll just be glad to have you back when you're free to join in.

Laura Crosse What about something light(ish) I nominate One Hundred Names by Cecelia Ahern!


message 16: by [deleted user] (new)

I don't think she's ever been nominated before, Laura. Which is a little strange as she has a few fans in the group.

I agree with both Barbara and Allan. I see a couple of things on here I wouldn't mind reading. I also have quite a few things in my to read queue already...like finish Cuckoo's Calling and getting to Eureka Street.


message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

Our discussions always remain open, Sara, so take as long as you need. :)


message 19: by [deleted user] (new)

This thread has been closed to new comments and the poll will follow shortly.

Thank you all for your nominations and input.

Declan. :)
