Joanna Loves Reading (joannalovesreading) Hi all! Starting up the monthly discussions for October 2018 book-of-the-month suggestions. This discussion is for the CLASSICS CATEGORY.

As a reminder, books that qualify for this category must have a publication date 1969 or before. For newer books, please make your suggestion on the Modern Classic/Popular Reads thread.

Not a hard and fast rule, but please try to limit your nominations to one book per category. But please do second any that interest you!

Nominations end 9 PM PDT August 25.
