It's time for December nominations! There is no theme this month, but please make sure that the book has been written by a woman, is at least 50 years old, and has not been previously read by the group (check the read shelf).

Nominations are 'til the 15th of this month. They are limited to two per person. Please also state whether or not you're available to lead the discussion.

Carol (carolfromnc) | 649 comments I nominate:

1. After Midnight by Irmgard Keun. (168 pages; first published in 1936); and

2. One Fine Day by Mollie Panter-Downes (179 pages; first published in 1947)

I am available to lead if either is selected.

Sorento62 I nominate A Good Man Is Hard To Find by Flannery O'Connor, which came in second in the voting for October's selection. Written in 1953. The short story itself is less than 35 pages. But you can read more than a hundred pages of analysis and discussion of the story if you have an interest. I can lead.

Busy month for most, so a short book is probably preferable. Therefore, I nominate Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton.

I can lead.

Mizzou | 177 comments I nominate Tell Me a Riddle, by Tillie Olsen. It's a collection of four short stories, and won the O. Henry Prize in 1961.

Kathryn, I read that recently and enjoyed it so much! Beautiful writing.
