October New School Nominations are open, please review the requirements below for books eligibly.

1.) Book that have already been featured as group reads are not eligible to be nominated. Bookshelf Link: https://www.goodreads.com/group/books...

2.) Eligible publication dates for a books nomination are 1900-1999.

3.) Only one nomination, and one second, per member! Please, seconds welcomed! Seconding a nomination is a fun way to participate in the nomination process, if you don't have a favorite that you'd like to nominate at this time. Plus, it's fun to see an early indication of interest. :)

4.) Nominations will remain open until midnight of the 14th; book polls will be open from the 16th of the month thru midnight of the last day of the month (with 1 day in between to finalize polls and make sure all nominations are accurately included on ballots).

Tytti | 1092 comments Lucas wrote: "I'd like to nominate Buddenbrooks: The Decline of a Family by Thomas Mann...."

I think this might also qualify as a long read, might have less competition there... Just a thought.

Nicole Miles (nicolemillo) I'll third The Secret Garden and also nominate Franz Kafka's The Trial

...Unless that's an illegal move in which case I retract my thirding as The Secret Garden has already been seconded ;)

This is true for Of Human Bondage and Aztec, all three meet size requirements. Of course they are perfectly good nominations here too.
