Poll is open for our next group read and since this is a busy time of year we do something a little different this month.

Nominate an author - not a book.

In past years we have discussed the works of Agatha Christie and Michael Connelly so no repeating them.

The authors should meet the following criteria
1) Written 5 or more books
2) Writing for at least 10 years
3) Dead or Alive doesn't matter.
4) Any genre of mystery - historical, cozy, thriller, police procedural, classic - is fine.

All the regular rules of the group read nominations still apply. No self-nominations or nominations by publishers, publicists, friends, or family of the author.

Nominations are open until Wednesday, Dec. 4th with voting to follow.
