Nominations are open for our August 2017 reread. Only books currently on our group bookshelf are eligible.

BOOKSHELF: https://www.goodreads.com/group/books...

Below is a list of the past years reread winners.

Wuthering Heights, July 2017
Brave New World, June 2017
Lolita, May 2017
Emma, April 2017
The Scarlet Letter, March 2017
The Handmaid's Tale, February 2017
One Hundred Years of Solitude, January 2017
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, December 2016
The Picture of Dorian Gray, November 2016
Frankenstein, October 2016
We Have Always Lived in the Castle, September 2016
Pride and Prejudice, August 2016

Only one nomination or one second per member. Only books that are seconded will move forward to poll.

Time Since Last Read
All of the books currently on our bookshelf are eligible for nomination. However, many members have requested that only books not read in the last year should be eligible. I tend to agree, but I'm not ready to make it a firm rule. So using the honor system, please make an effort to only nominate books that have not been read by the group in the last year.

When making a nomination, please use "add book/author" link to help others view the book selected.

Nominations will run from today thru the 14th. Polls will open on the 16th and will run till the end of the month
