Please nominate up to 3 titles for the October 2018 group read. This should be a book from either the original series or revival that has not yet been read in this group. The official book lists can be found in the How It Works thread, and books already read by this group can be found on the read bookshelf.

Has anyone heard from Laura or Colleen (she's the leader for Q4)??? I don't want to step on toes and post a poll for the Q4 book, but I know there are probable some who want to start...

I know Laura had a busy summer. I think we should have more than 1 moderator. Thanks for putting that poll up Holly!!
