Please select a book from our Classics Bookshelf and place your nominations here.

Depending on how many books are nominated, we may have to narrow it down to only putting books in the poll that have 2 or more nominations here.

Nominations end September 15th at which point the poll goes up.

Let the nominations begin...

not sure what to nominate yet! :D


message 7: by Pip (new)

Pip I'd be happy with either Lord of the Flies (last read it aged 14, so a re-read is well overdue!) or The Quiet American - so I'm seconding both, if that's allowed!!

Some nice nominations! Thanks everyone! Thank you, Anne!

Pip Oh no!! That would be my third group read with the Bell Jar concurrently! Funny how certain books suddenly pop up all over the place for no apparent reason. Has Amazon slipped in some subliminal advertising along the way?!
