Good afternoon, everyone! It's hard to believe that it's time to do the nominations for January's Book of the Month!

Remember to check out the guidelines under the "Book of the Month Reading" section if you're not familiar with them, and to check out the shelves for 2011, 2012 and 2013 on our group bookshelf if it's something you're not sure if we've read as a group or not.

If you need help finding any of those things, just let me know!

The thread will be open until Saturday, November 30. Happy nominating!

Nominations as of November 24:
1. While We're Far Apart by Lynn Austin
2. The Calling of Emily Evans by Janette Oke
3. Josiah for President by Martha Bolton
4. Love's Reckoning by Laura Frantz
5. The Reluctant Prophet by Nancy Rue
6. Beyond All Measure by Dorothy Love
7. The Well by Stephanie Landsem

Natalie, I'm not sure what you're talking about. Rebecca is seconding Loraine's nomination, so there's no need to post it again. Unless there's something else I'm missing. :)

Cammie, it looks like this one hasn't been out for at least 6 month, but just 5 in January. Can you nominate another? Maybe you can nominate this one later on in 2014 :)

Good afternoon, everyone! Strange to be thinking ahead to January, but it's time to announce the Books of the Month!

In January we will be discussing...

While We're Far Apart by Lynn Austin

and

The Reluctant Prophet by Nancy Rue

Two very different reads, which I think is great! Thank you to everyone for nominating, and if yours nomination didn't get picked, make sure you nominate again in February! :)

Loraine (librarydiva) | 2670 comments Mod
Looking forward to reading them. I have While We're Far Apart on my kindle. This will start me off on paring down kindle, piles and TBR!


message 29: by Sara (new)

Sara | 75 comments I loved While We're Far Apart & will probably read it again. Also looking forward to the other one.


message 30: by Natalie (new)

Natalie (creativecountry0407gmailcom) | 264 comments @Beth: Just requested these from the library. We will see how fast mine can get them.

Ooh, I have both of these books on my Kindle and I've really enjoyed both these authors in the past. I'll see if I can squeeze them both in next month :)

Loraine (librarydiva) | 2670 comments Mod
Just put The Reluctant Prophet on hold at the library!


message 33: by Natalie (new)

Natalie (creativecountry0407gmailcom) | 264 comments My copies of both of these books came in at the library today. Don't know if I will read and discuss them with all of you because they are almost five hundred page each. I have so many other books I want to read that would take so much less time. Sorry I cannot join the discussion. I will try to participate in the others for next year, though.


message 34: by Beth, Head Librarian (new)

Beth | 2219 comments Mod
Natalie there's no pressure to participate in both or either of them.

I'm going to definitely read The Reluctant Prophet and will try to read While We're Far Apart since it's been on my to-read list a while but we'll see :)


message 35: by Natalie (new)

Natalie (creativecountry0407gmailcom) | 264 comments @Beth: Thanks for understanding. I will read them at some point even if I cannot discuss them.


message 36: by Beth (new)

Beth  (canadianbeth) | 95 comments I just requested While We're Far Apart from the library.


message 37: by Natalie (new)

Natalie (creativecountry0407gmailcom) | 264 comments @Beth: When do you plan to post the thread for February's nominations? I still need to make a decision.


message 38: by Beth, Head Librarian (new)

Beth | 2219 comments Mod
Hi Natalie. As soon as I get a "turn" on the lap top. :)


message 39: by Amanda (new)

Amanda (mandey1) | 46 comments I read both books in 10 days. they are amazing!
