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!

John (jwarner6comcastnet) | 21 comments I would like a clarification on the rules. The way that 2 and 3 are written, it seems to indicate that a member can nominate AND second a book in any month. Is this correct or should #3 open with "Or, any member may also second...?"

You can do both. Each member is allowed one nomination AND one second of another member's nomination.

John (jwarner6comcastnet) | 21 comments Kristin, thank you for the clarification. It must have been in another group that I was corrected when I nominated one book and seconded another, told I could not do this. I must keep the rules straight in each group!

Hi Amina. Would you be able to clarify which Cherry Crush you are nominating? There appears to be more than one book by that title.

Thank you!
