A few reminders about nomination rules:

- Each member may nominate one book AND second one book that has already been nominated.

-If you want to only nominate or only second a book without nominating anything that is fine.

- If we get more than 10 nominations then the 10 books with the most seconds will go to the poll.

- Graphic novels, manga, and comics are allowed to be nominated

-There are no minimum page counts for a book to be nominated.

- Books must be first in a series or a stand alone unless the group has already read the book in the series that came before the one being nominated.

- Nominations will close the afternoon of June 15th

Hey Aqsa the genre for this month is Sci-go and that book seems to be fantasy from the description. Do you have a science fiction book that you would like to nominate?

Shahed babu (shahedbabu46) | 1 comments The Proximity of Stars by Benedict Stuart


Nikki ~ The Nocturnal Bookworm (nyxreadsstuff) Just as a clarification for everyone that has nominated the proximity of stars after Boyko, since it was already nominated I will count those as seconds.

Boyko wrote: "My 2nd nomination: The Pacifist by Mehreen Ahmed."

Each person only gets to add one nomination and may second a book already nominated. You have already nominated The Proximity of Stars. Did you want to change you nomination to this?

I'm going through and updating the first post with everything to this point


Nikki ~ The Nocturnal Bookworm (nyxreadsstuff) Ok I believe I have everything to this point updated if I missed your please let me know!


message 22: by Boyko (new)

Boyko Ovcharov Thanks Nikki, all clear now, I deleted my second post, it is OK like that, sorry.

No worries just wanted to make sure :)

Jenny | 158 comments I haven't used my second yet, so I am going for Dune. I haven't read that since I was a kid. It may be time to do it again.


Nikki ~ The Nocturnal Bookworm (nyxreadsstuff) I believe I have everything up to this point updated as far as nominations and seconds. If you still want to get something in be sure to do so by the 15th!


Nikki ~ The Nocturnal Bookworm (nyxreadsstuff) Nominations close tomorrow afternoon so of you have anything to add or want to second anything to help secure it's place in the nominations get it in before then.
