Sarah | 18188 comments So on to sorting out November's group reads.

If you have an idea for a theme for November, 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 October.

Nominations so far:
Native American theme
Canadian authors (seconded x 2)
Egyptian theme (seconded)
Short stories (seconded x 4)
Fireworks/bonfire theme
Cold theme (seconded x 2)

Ben (basebox) | 113 comments It's bonfire night over here in the UK on the 5th November, so I'd like to nominate fireworks/bonfire as a theme.

Tejas Janet (tejasjanet) | 3513 comments I'm nominating theme for Day of the Dead - November 2. Read a book for someone you loved and is now gone that you wish to honor. Or read a book for someone you didn't know who is gone and you wish to honor.

We've honoured people quite a bit recently with challenges. Plus it doesn't work for the group reads as a chosen book would not be honouring someone we love or wish to honour but who the person who nominated the book loves or honours. Anyway you can change it to make it more universal or nominate something else?
