Carol (carolfromnc) For your planning purposes:

—our September group read will be Black Wings Has My Angel, Elliott Chaze’s noir gem, first published in 1953;

—our October group read will be The Uninvited by Dorothy Macardle, described as a Gothic, bone-chilling Irish ghost story by those kings of understatement at Google Books. First published in 1942;

Find your copies and join us for either or both discussions.

Finally, we will tee up a poll in mid-September for our November read. If you would like to nominate a book for our November poll, post it in this thread by September 10 and we will include it in the poll along with our last set of non-winners. If you nominate a book and it wins, we’ll look for you to take the lead in getting our discussion launched, please.

Cordelia (anne21) I think that I was nominator of our Sept book. So my job to lead the discussion. So please, if someone could set up a thread, I would be much appreciative.

You should be able to do it yourself - if you click on the "Current Book of the Month" folder link, then click on "New topic" in the top right hand corner (this probably needs a browser in desktop view - I don't think you can do it in the mobile app, but I have not tried the latest version of that). If you are struggling I can do it.

Carol (carolfromnc) Our poll is up for our November selection — 4 diverse and strong options. It will be open at midnight, I believe, and run through September 30. Vote early and often, as they say :)

Members have spoken with their choice not to vote for a group read in November, so there will not be a group read next month.
