Sara | 1508 comments We are going to start the nomination thread for March's group read a little earlier than previous months. This will hopefully allow more time for participants to acquire a copy (especially from the library).

UPDATE: This thread will remain open until January 31 for nominations. Once nominations close a poll will be created with the top 6 books from the nominations.

Post the title and the author (link if possible - this makes it much easier to tabulate the nominations).

One nomination of one book per member.
The top 6 most nominated books will be added to the poll.

No other posts in this thread.

Nope! Only if you want to. If it's a prompt that you're struggling with, it's nice to do the group read.

No, the monthly read is an optional activity for those who are interested. You are welcome to join, but you may certainly abstain :)

This thread is just nominations for books that members suggest for the group read. Once we close the nominations (haven't set a date for that yet) I will count up the total nominations for each book. The top six will then be added to a poll for voting. When the poll is created I will send a message to the entire group so that you can vote.

Hélène | 17 comments Rebecca is an interesting book, but I would't say it's a book about an interesting woman...

I'd like to read Girl Waits with Gun, which is "a novel based on the forgotten true story of one of the nation’s first female deputy sheriffs," Constance Kopp. I read another book by Amy Stewart last year (it was about earthworms, completely different kind of book!) and I loved it, so I want to read more by her. When I found out that this is a novelization of a real life, and another group member (I'm sorry, I cannot remember who you are!) highly recommended it, I pushed it to the top of my list!

There, that's my sales pitch :-)

Jule Monnens (kaferlily) | 38 comments I vote for Hidden Figures though I'm reading it for another category. I am reading Hedy's Folly about "a remarkable story of science history: how a ravishing film star and an avant-garde composer invented spread-spectrum radio, the technology that made wireless phones, GPS systems, and many other devices possible. Hedy's Folly: The Life and Breakthrough Inventions of Hedy Lamarr, the Most Beautiful Woman in the World

Antonia E Iacampo | 15 comments Oh, I second (or 5th or whatever we are at, lol) Hidden Figures. I'm also reading it for a different category, but I'd love to have a group discussion about it.

I see everyone is going with real women for this prompt...interesting. That is totally not where I went in my head.

I was going to suggest The Book of the Unnamed Midwife.

LdyGray | 7 comments I also nominate Hidden Figures, or Savage Beauty: The Life of Edna St. Vincent Millay.

All of these suggestions are great!
