Polls are now open for voting. To the right of the group home page you will see the poll option, click it and vote away.

The site will only allow you to vote for one book per catagory, however you can change your vote as many times as you like up until closing time.

The polls will remain open until July 27th which is Monday.

OK, Im a little late with this, but I wanted to make sure I started on a Monday. So, here we go!

We will have two catagories this month:
Cat1- Regular Fiction/Non-Fiction
Cat2- Book and Movie Deal

If you choose to nominate a book for catagory 2, I think we would all prefer it not be one currently in the movies (as that can get expensive).

Only ONE nomination per person.

Please be sure to post the title, author, and the catagory it belongs to.

If your post does not have those three things, it will not be counted.

Are you ready?
I will leave nominations open until Wednesday nite.....

Ahem... Becca... Check out the rules please.

Becca, its ok. When I post for nominations and voting, I always put rules up. I'll let it slide this time, and chalk it up to be over-excited :)

We dont need to second anyones nominations. I didnt put that in the original post, and perhaps I should have. Every nomination that has all the required information is automatically entered into the voting polls.

Just read it recently and I totally loved it. Such a sweet, funny, sad, heartbreaking, and uplifting book. And not long at all. It's the very definition of a "Good Read." :)

***If you do not see your nomination here, it is because it does not have all the required information that was listed in Post#1. In order to have them added to the list, you must delete your original post (since it was posted prior to this list, since I am not backtracking old posts from here) and post a NEW nomination with all three required pcs of information.

And again, there is no need to nominate a book that has already been nominated. You are basically just wasting your turn. So go ahead and post a new nomination. Just remember.... ONE NOMINATION PER PERSON, NOT ONE PER CATAGORY!

Thanks, and keep those noms coming. We still have two more days to get it in... today, and tomorrow!
