Diane | 12851 comments Post your nominations here for the October group reads. A significant portion of the book must be set in the featured location. We will be reading books set in Oman and the province of Alberta in Canada. We will also be featuring translated non-fiction history and biography books. Here are lists to get you started:

Oman*:
Oman Group Book List: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...
Oman Bookshelf: https://www.goodreads.com/group/books...

Alberta
Canada Book List: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/... (Scroll down to "Books set in Alberta" heading-Post 4)
Bookshelf for Alberta: https://www.goodreads.com/group/books...

Translated History and Biography (Non-fiction):
Nominate translated history or biography books. Note: Book must be originally written in a language other than English. Many foreign authors write books in English - these would not qualify.
Here is a list of some titles that work (nominated books do not need to be on this list):

Books do not need to be present on these lists to be nominated. Authors, please do not nominate your own books.

*For our featured world country selection (this month it is Oman): If the book selected by popular vote is not written by a native or resident author, the book written by a native author with the highest votes will also be selected, resulting in two book selections for that country.
