Shirley | 4177 comments It's (a bit late - sorry!) time to nominate for our January group fiction read! Please use this thread to nominate your choice.

Nominations start today and will close on December 2nd.

During this time anybody can either nominate or second a book. The 6 books with the most second votes at the end of the 5 day nomination period will go into the poll. Each person can either nominate one book or second one book. There are no limits to the number of seconds a book can receive.

The poll will then run until the 6th December and the winner will be announced the following day. This will leave a month for people to get hold of the book in preparation for the read.

Please only nominate, second or vote for a book you will read with the group if it should win. Please also check that your chosen nomination hasn't been a group read in the past. You can do this by looking at the group bookshelf, contact one of the moderators or post on 'Ask the Moderators' thread

If you have any questions on the nominations process please contact me, use the 'Ask the Moderators' thread or post on here and we will be happy to help

Remember, we will be reading We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves in December.

I'll second this. It was recommended to me during a recommendation swap last year but I couldn't find a copy; my library now has it so I'd like to give it a try.
