Sarah | 18119 comments July will be here in no time at all. So we had better have a think on our July group read theme.

So if you have an idea for a theme, go ahead and nominate it below.

Alternatively, you can second someone else's nomination instead, but that will count as your own nomination, and that theme will be entered twice in random.org - giving the theme an additional chance to make the cut.

Only 5 themes will make the cut and end up in the poll.

Nominations can be seconded multiple times by different people. If you second a nomination, please make clear that is what you are doing. E.g. If I nominate "Books whose title starts with A", you need to state "I second Books whose title starts with A".

Nominations close 12th June

Nominated Themes:
- Moon theme
- Memory loss theme
- Ice cream flavours in the title
- Books about books
- Special Events

Annerlee | 2640 comments How about 'Lunar' in celebration of the Moon landing on July 24th

So - a book with 'moon' in the title or a moon as a theme. Could involve space exploration (real or sci-fi) / people affected by the moon (werewolves, people who live according to cycles of nature etc )

I've not been here long, so I hope this isn't a repeat : )

Sarah | 18119 comments It's not a repeat Annerlee. We've had a theme before where we had sun/moon/stars etc in the title (a couple years ago) but not a theme. I like the theme idea.

Lisa (lisathebooklover) | 9244 comments July 2nd is 'I Forgot Day' so I will nominate books where memory loss plays an important part in the story.

Peggy (pebbles84) | 14605 comments There are several icecream related holidays in July apparently, like Creative Ice Cream Flavours Day, National Ice Cream Day, Peach Ice Cream Day, and Vanilla Ice Cream Day.

My nomination is books that have an ice cream flavour in their title (for example Like Water for Chocolate or Lemon Meringue Pie Murder)

That sounds like a winner... I want ice cream already!
(I know I can't second this one, but still..)

Sarah | 18119 comments We have some interesting themes so far!


message 8: by Tasha (new)

Tasha Really fun themes so far! Since I'm finding out that there is a lot of 'moon' stuff going on in my house, I'm going to second moon theme. :)

Elsbeth (elsbethgm) | 1136 comments My second goes to the moon (theme)!

You haven't got any werewolves in your house, have you Tasha? ;)

Kristie | 12979 comments I don't think I'm being quite as original as the above nominations (all great ideas), but I have a few books about books that I want to read, so I will nominate Books About Books.


message 14: by Amanda (Mandy) (new)

Amanda (Mandy) | 582 comments Well July 2nd is my birthday so I will second the ice cream flavor theme. I would maybe add some cake to go with the ice cream.

Renee (elenarenee) | 1623 comments Wow all are wonderful ideas I can' wait


message 16: by Tammy (new)

Tammy Burger (tammyburger) | 449 comments July is my wedding anniversary. 37 years this year. How about books that celebrate some type of special event?


message 17: by Peggy, Moderator (new)

Peggy (pebbles84) | 14605 comments Congrats Tammy!
