Luella Parameters are

2. Must have 5,000 ratings or less
3. Forgotten Classics must be 50 years or older (cut off 1967)
4. Lesser Known books must be 10 years ore older (cut off 2007)

Also as a result of the poll we are only reading one book per month so you may nominate a forgotten classic or a lesser known book.

Cheryl is busier irl atm. (cherylllr) From the beloved creator of Winnie-the-Pooh, A.A. Milne, comes an irresistible collection of short stories: The Sunny Side: Short Stories and Poems for Proper Grown-Ups.

From 1921.

ConnieD (bookwithcat) Carol's book sounds good or even his Vice Versa - never knew that was I book. I've added them both to my tbr list anyway.

message 6: by Marilyn (new)

Marilyn I nominate The Keepers of the House by Shirley Ann Grau. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1965. With 4657 ratings, I thought we should give it a run in the polls before it goes over the limit.

Luella Hey all I want to get a month ahead we have more time to get the book. I'm going to nominate Valentine Vox, the Ventriloquist His Life and Adventures and close this one out and open up one for August
