I'm going to set up 3 nominations for August 1 (or July 15). I'll start with a "big book" nomination and vote. We'll allow at least 2 -3 months time. I'll set up multiple discussion threads (based on chapter numbers) to allow in-depth discussions before you get to the end.

If we can decide quickly, you should have at least 3 weeks lead time to get the book or get a head start reading it.

I know that's not of interest to everyone, so I'll also set up nominations for a small book, and then an open nomination for a book of any size. This way the third nomination/votes can be made in full knowledge of your alternatives. Let me know if you have any suggestions for another way to do it.

I posted a nomination thread for the next Group read - to start on August 15 or Sept 1. It's in the "IMPORTANT" folder, which is closer to the top and maybe easier to spot.

Ella will also run a Focused Read for September on Diversity or a more specific theme.
