Nominations are open for our May 2016 reread. Only books currently of our group bookshelf are eligible.

BOOKSHELF: https://www.goodreads.com/group/books...

Any book currently on our bookshelf can be nominated. Below is a list of the past years winners.

The Bell Jar, April 2016
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, March 2016
A Farewell to Arms, February 2016
Slaughterhouse-Five, January 2016

Brave New World, August 2015
East of Eden, July 2015

The past years winners are always eligible for nomination, however ask yourself do we want to read the same book twice in one year?

Only one nomination or one second per member

RULE CHANGE: Only one nomination or one second per member. Only books that are seconded will move forward to poll.

Feel free to make comments about the nominated books. Remember to avoid Spoilers, any eligible nomination in this category is a past group read and has open discussion threads for spoilers.

Nominations will run from today thru the 14th. Polls will open on the 16th and will run till the end of the month
