Nominations for our September Non-Fiction read are now open!

The them is True Crime.

Criteria:
1. Book must be by a female author (transwomen and women using male pseudonyms are women).

3. You cannot nominate your own book.
4. Must be a Non-Fiction True Crime book.

How to Nominate:
1. Give both the title of the book and the author's name when nominating to avoid mix-ups - title only nominations may be missed

This is one of those genres I'm not "in" to but I imagine I could get swept up in quite easily. So I'm excitedly awaiting everyone else's nominations :)

Laurie I nominate The 57 Bus: A True Story of Two Teenagers and the Crime That Changed Their Lives by Dashka Slater. This was nominated for July in a different category and came 2nd in the poll. It sounded too interesting not to try again. (Thanks to whomever nominated it previously).

I can lead.
