Lisa (lisadannatt) | 304 comments Nominations for September are open until 18 July. Limited to two nominations per member. Nominations can be for any classic written by a woman and do not need to be seconded. Please indicate whether or not you will be able to lead the discussion if your book wins.

I read it in the beginning of the year and really enjoyed it.

Carolien (carolien_s) | 126 comments I'd like to nominate Hester and Thelma for purely selfish reasons. At the start of the year I thought it would be a good idea to read a book by a new to me female author set in each decade since 1800 ( it seemed like a good idea over the December holidays!) and for some reason 1880 is particularly challenging. Either of these would meet the requirement and since they are both new authors to me, I hope somebody else would also like to try a new author.

Carol She's So Novel꧁꧂  | 373 comments I've already ready Lady Audley's Secret (Carolien recommended it to me! :) ) & it was great.

I'm not nominating this month as I am very interested in at least 2 of the other nominations. :)

There are such great nominations here that I'm not even going to nominate anything. Voting for one will be the hard part. :)

The Tenant of Wildfell Hall I would be happy to lead if nominated

As everyone is probably getting their "Tenant of Wildfell Hall" books, watch out that you are able to get the complete book. It should start as a letter to a friend.

The 99 cent copy on Amazon isn't complete.

I have the Collin's classic edition for my nook and that was complete. Also the paperback Wordsworth Editions were complete.

I got the Penguin edition, that appears to be complete.

Viv JM | 81 comments Yes, I have the Penguin copy too. Really looking forward to reading this one.
