Sarah | 18091 comments We need a theme for the March group read!

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 7th February

Nominations so far:
Strong women who are inspiring/made a change
Lost in the title
Antihero/villain protagonists
Saintly people

Peggy (pebbles84) | 14545 comments Inspired by the recent Women's Marches, I nominate books (fiction or non-fiction) about strong women who are inspiring or made a change.


message 3: by Julie (new)

Julie | 7 comments I work overnight and have been working a lot of hours, so I'm sitting here dreaming of vacations I will never take or just getting lost. Then I thought "lost" that would be a good theme. So I nominate books with the word "lost" in the title.


message 4: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 46828 comments Those are both intriguing ideas, Peggy and Julie. I feel strongly about the women's marches that we've seen recently. I'm also feeling a bit lost these days.

Lisa (lisathebooklover) | 9244 comments Apparently there is a "Be Nasty" day in March, so I will nominate books with protagonists who are antiheroes or villains.

I second this one. Could be interesting reading!

Lanelle | 3010 comments I second (technically 3rd) Lisa's nomination of protagonist who is a villain.
(And I already have a book in mind to read.)


message 8: by Tammy (new)

Tammy Burger (tammyburger) | 449 comments With Saint Patrick's day, I'll nominate books about saintly people.

Tejas Janet (tejasjanet) | 3513 comments I'm seconding the lost theme for books with "lost" in the title. Would subtitles be included or no?

In this case "Be Nasty" is not bad it is actually good and standing up for our rights . I know this is a world wide group so I'm just making a comment as an American.
