As I am going to be away and out of internet range for the first half of November, December nominations are going up early.

For our December Read Around the World we will be reading a book set in... Europe


Books set in any European country are acceptable for nomination. The author does not have to be from said country (though it might be worth noting if they are). Also acceptable are books set on continent, but where the country is never firmly identified in the text.

Once the winner is picked, we will strike that country off the list next time we visit Europe

Criteria
1. Book must be written by a woman (transwomen and women writing under male pseudonyms are women)
2. Book must be set (or at least half-set) in any European country.
3. No books that have already been group reads (see our list of previous reads)
4. You cannot nominate your own book


Nomination Rules
1. Please identify the title , authors name , and the country (if identifiable) your book is set in when nominating.
2. Ideally use the Goodreads 'add book/author' button when nominating, otherwise your nomination may be missed.
3. Try to avoid using this thread for chatter and don't link to any book that isn't your nomination as it makes it very hard to locate what are actual nominations and what is just discussion.
4. One nomination per person.
