Chava | 2788 comments Hi,

This is the nominations thread for Book of the Month for February 2016. Please be aware of the following rules:

1) Authors aren't allowed to nominate their own books and your post will be deleted (feel free to post in the authors' threads on our site) and you might be banned from the site!
2) 1 book suggestion/nomination per person
3) First come, first serve. So whoever gets their nomination for a book in first, gets dibs on that book
4) A book in a series is fine
5) Please be mindful that recent books might not be readily available (yet) and be mindful that your suggestion is available in multiple formats. Please do NOT suggest books that haven't been published yet. Please do NOT suggest books that are only available in Kindle or ebook format!
6) Please check that a book hasn't already been read by checking our unread section of the bookshelf (it's not a 100%, I'm working on it).
7) The nominators of the top 3 voted books agree to lead the discussion thread for the month on their nominated book.

Any questions, either PM me or post a message on the thread.
The nominations will run until the 17th of January and for voting to commence soon after.

Have a great festive season!!

I want to make it clear that we have these rules for a good reason. Authors have a spot on our site to make members aware of their work. Breaches will be deleted and members receive a warning. If further breaches occur, members will be blocked from further participation on our group site.
