Please nominate up to 3 titles for the July group read:

1.
2.
3.


Please nominate up to 2 titles for the Quarter 3 re-read:

1.
2.

Please remember: the July book should come from Rory's list which can be found on the Black, White and Read blog book list, which is linked in the How It Works tread at the top of this group. These nominations should be for books that the group has NOT yet read.

The Quarter 3 re-read should be a book that this group has already read that you are wanting to either re-read, didn't get a chance to read or finish from a prior month. You can find these titles on the "read" bookshelf for this group!

I'm very excited to know what the book will be for July!! When is the poll going up??


message 14: by Windy (new)

Windy | 44 comments As it is the last day of June, and I am the discussion leader for July, I put together a poll for the book choice. The voting will end at midnight July 3rd CST. If Laura post a poll for this, the results from hers will trump mine.

Please follow this link to vote: https://linkto.run/p/6TWCBHB1
You can see the results as people vote at this link: https://linkto.run/r/6TWCBHB1

Where is Laura? She hasn't been active in the group for awhile. I sent her a message but I didn't get a response either.

Anybody know her IRL??


message 16: by Amaka (new)

Amaka Nzeadibe hi wendy, I'm wondering why the godfather isn't an option, as it was suggested the same number of times as the lord of the flies

Amaka, I'm sorry that it did not make the list this time. With July upon us, I wanted to keep the list short. I took the ones with the most suggestions, which meant The Count of Monte Cristo (4) and Lord of the Flies (3). After that there were 7 books that each had 2 people suggest them, so I had to make the best decision that I could.

I'm in charge of Quarter 3. I can post the poll tonight, unless Laura posts one. In that case, her results will trump mine.

Hi everyone, thank you Holly and Windy for getting polls set up for your books! This has been a very hectic month on my side so I really appreciate the help!

I'll be back on schedule for August. Windy and Holly, please let me know what book(s) win your polls so I can add them to the bookshelf. Thank you.

I'm glad to see you are back!! I was worried about you for a bit there. Summer is hectic here as well. Should we think about adding another moderator (Maybe Holly and/or Wendy?) so if you get busy it still gets done? I think it's a lot on just one person.

Just a reminder: Quarter 3 poll closes tomorrow.

No problem. Always happy to help. I'll let you know as soon as my poll ends so you can change the book for the quarter re-read. Looking forward to it. Also if you need any help keeping up, shoot me a message and I am willing to help out.
