Please post a comment below to nominate a book for the group to read for August 2016.

Please use the "add book/author" link just above the comment box to insert a link to the Goodreads book page for the book you are nominating, so other members can more easily assess it.

You may nominate a book which has been suggested previously and did not win.

Please do not nominate a book which is unlikely to be available to all members, such as one which was just published within the last three months or which is only available on Kindle.

Nominations will close on June 21 or when we have about 10 good nominations, whichever occurs first.

Glynn | 52 comments I would like to nominate Snowball Earth The Story of the Great Global Catastrophe That Spawned Life as We Know It by Gabrielle Walker by Gabrielle Walker once again. Don't think we've read it yet and would be a good coool read for the dog days of August :)

Just started reading Adventure in Human Being and it is quite a wonderful book. It won many prizes including Best Book of the Year from the London Times. Compulsively readable.

Elizabeth Theiss Smith (dakotaprof) I'm also very interested in Why Zebras Dont Get Ulcers. It's been on my to-read list for years.

I don't understand, Elizabeth. Are you nominating this book for the August group read? It's already the group read for the current month of June.
