Bill | 5464 comments It's time for the nominations for the Feb / Mar 2017 group read. This month you'll be nominating mysteries/crime fiction that were written by authors whose last name begins with the letter 'G'. There are a number of great series and standalone novels that fall into this category.

Authors we've read as a group before are okay to nominate, but please make sure we haven't read the particular book. My next post will list the specific books we're already read.

NOW -- for the usual stuff:

1. If your nomination wins the poll vote, you will become the de facto discussion leader. Do NOT nominate a book if you do not wish to do this.

2. When a book gets to the poll, please please please -- if you don't really want to read it, don't vote for it.

3. This is not the place for authors to promote their own work.

4. If the book is in a series, it might be wise to start with book #1 rather than somewhere mid-series.

Let the nominations begin!

while I'm deeper into the alphabet with this series, I think it would be fun to go back and reread where it all started.
