Here is the thread to post your nomination for December's Book of the Month & Buddy Read. Per our tradition, please nominate a Christmas-themed read for December!

Here is a shelf dedicated exclusively to the Christmas-themed books we've already read as a group: https://www.goodreads.com/group/books...

If you have never nominated before, please look at the full guidelines: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...!

PLEASE REVIEW THESE GUIDELINES:
-Please do not nominate a book we've already read as a group, especially not one we've done in the last 2 - 3 years. You will be asked for a different nomination if you do. Find our shelves here: https://www.goodreads.com/group/books....
-Remember that a book must be out for 6 months or more to be eligible for nominations and voting
-Try not to nominate an author that we've read that year already
-If it is a book in a series that is not the first book, make sure you know that it can be read as a standalone and doesn't require the previous books being read to understand and enjoy.
-Please note that there may be more reasons that a book is not a good fit for nominations or group members as a whole, whether it be availability, cost, accessibility, etc. The moderators reserve the right to make these decision. Thank you for your understanding! :)

-Nominations will be open through October 15

Nominations as of Oct. 7:
1. Mountain Christmas Brides: Nine Historical Novellas Celebrate Faith and Love in the Rocky Mountains by Susan Page Davis
2. The Christmas Note by Donna VanLiere
3. The Snowflake by Jamie Carie
4. Love Came Down At Christmas: A Fancy Amish Smicksburg Tale by Karen Anna Vogel

Hi, all! Look for the poll a little delayed today - I thought I set it up to start last night at midnight, but I have looked and don't see it. I guess I didn't click save after creating it. I'll do it as soon as I can today, but it will probably be later this evening before I have time to do it. Thanks for your patience!

No worries, Beth. We understand you have a busy schedule. I'll get my vote in whenever the poll is ready, but of course, there is no rush.

Carolyn V | 221 comments oh darn, 'The giver of wonders' is not at library; may have to check kindle; or just read the many books I already have.

Carolyn - see if your library does interlibrary loan. That is how I am going to have to get it.

Jolyn | 24 comments I really enjoyed "The Lost Heiress" by Roseanna M. White when we read it. It was the first book I had read by that author. I will be looking forward to reading "Giver of Wonders" by her in December. Our library system doesn't have the book so I will have to purchase the digital book on Amazon but it is only $3.99 so not to bad a price.

... and I can get "The Christmas Angel Project" from the library. Hooray!
