Hi everyone :-)

It's time to nominate and vote for our June Fiction Group Read.

The 'rules' are:

- One nomination per person
- First six 'seconded' nominations will be put in a poll where members can vote on their choice.
- The book should be fiction but should not be a 'classic' novel, as we have a separate bi-monthly classics read.
- The book nominated should be available in paperback form.
- If you nominate a book, you cannot second one as well (and vice versa).

Please post your nominations on this thread, which will remain open until 13th May or until six seconded nominations are made. The poll will be open from 12th May until 19th May and the winner will be announced on the 20th May.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask on this thread :-)

Jenny (jeoblivion) | 4869 comments Ian, if you are on your computer you just use the 'add book/author' thing that's on top of the comment box. (doesn't work on the app I believe)

Okay, so far we have:

Under the Dome
The Woman Who Heard Color (seconded)
More Than This (seconded)
The Round House (seconded)
The Art of Fielding (seconded)
The Funeral Makers
Harvest (seconded)
Thirty Girls
All the Light We Cannot See
The Accidental Tourist
One Day
The Book Of Fires

So it looks like we already have 5 books that have been seconded - only 1 more to go!

I just want to thank everyone for their participation, I love how quickly these nominations have happened! Just a quick question - would it be helpful for next time to up the number to 8 seconded books rather than 6?
