Kristin B. Bodreau (krissy22247) ***Please Read all Guidelines Before Nominating***

1. All nominations must meet the following criteria:
-Published in or after 1960, but at least 6 months old
-No more than 5,000 Goodreads ratings
-No self-promotion

2. Each member may nominate ONE book per month

3. Each member may also second ONE book per month
If someone else nominates a book that you are interested in, simply post that you would like to SECOND that book to give it another nomination vote.

4. We will vote on the five books that have the most seconds for the month's read
If less than five books receive seconds, I will pick whatever other nominated books have the highest star rating to round out the five needed for the poll.

Happy Nominating!

Hi. Did you mean The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand? If so it does not meet the requirements of having less than 5,000 ratings. You can nominate something else of course. : )

Kim I'll second Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus as it sounds really good!


message 11: by Amaka (new)

Amaka Nzeadibe I'd like to nominate The Summer that Melted Everything

Sally McDaniel-Smith | 13 comments May I nominate Storm in a Teacup, by Helen Czerski?

I enjoyed the heck out of this one. She finally satisfactorily answered the question I've always had about why ducks' feet don't get cold when they stand on ice. :)

Storm in a Teacup: The Physics of Everyday Life

Sarah I will second Storm in a Teacup: The Physics of Everyday Life

Hari Brandl (crochetbuddies) | 14 comments I think I'll nominate "After Claude", by Iris Owens. Her writing reminds me of Dorothy Parker, and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"
None of her books got even 1000 ratings, as far as I can see.
