Hello Aficionados! It's time to start thinking of some nominations for our April 2018 Group Read(s). The theme for this month is "Hauntings": This could be ANY kind of haunting . . . house, ghost, people, places, paranormal, psychological, objects, etc... Basically, any broad definition of the term so long as it fits into the "horror" category. With all the possibilities here, I'm looking forward to what our members come up with!

***Please remember: Authors may NOT nominate their own works, and any book that was used as a group read or listen in the past 12 months is ineligible.***

***Books with more than one nomination (seconds, thirds, fourths....) are more likely to make it into the final poll for voting, so feel free to add your voice to other nominations.***


I'm looking to close the nominations and set up the poll @ the 20th.

Have fun!!!!

A HEAD FULL OF GHOSTS is not eligible because it was chosen in January 2018. Here is a link to the list of books that were chosen as Group Reads and Listens in the past year: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

Since I don't see that either Ghost Hunters, or Ring are available in eBooks, those will be difficult for many members to get. (Both great choices, and I have paperbacks of each, but they're not necessarily available to all members)...

How about The Elementals by Michael McDowell ?

Actually, the two books that I mentioned as not being available in kindle/eBook are listed on GRs as that, but when I checked Amazon, neither was "currently available" in that format. :(

My bad. I thought I had seen my library had e-books available for Suzuki's series, but it turns out my library has hard copies.
