Hi everyone,

Please list your nominations for the October Book of the Month here. I will consider suggestions until next Saturday when the poll goes up.

And if you can't remember, here is the list of books we've already read: https://www.goodreads.com/group/books...

Hi everyone,

Shira reminded me that we had earlier talked about having October be our 2nd month in the year when we would read a fictional work of nature literature, so please limit your suggestions to novels or collections of short stories this time around.

With that in mind, I'll nominate The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah.

Thanks!
Becky

Because our last novel took place (often) in Alaska, and because I'd prefer a less emotionally intense novel, I nominate "At Hawthorn Time" by Melissa Harrison.

Thank you, Becky ~

The History of Bees The title sounds like nonfiction, but this is fiction set in England 1852, US 2007, and China 2098

Sarah Booth (boothacus) | 112 comments Sher, I went to look at The History of Bees but the description of the book is in another language though the title was in English. Makes it a tad difficult to get an idea about the book but I am intrigued.

Click of different editions, and that should bring up English edition. I hope. It was sent to me by my good friend in Germany, but I thought the English version was out, because - well it is I have it in English. :)

I am with you Shira- that last book was amazingly INTENSE. But, maybe it's me I seldom read fiction anymore.

Sorry - its nonfiction. How about one of Barbara Kingsolver's novels?

Sarah Booth (boothacus) | 112 comments Ah. Yes, I will do that when I am next on the computer instead of my phone. Some days I miss the obvious. I think it’s because I need some time out in nature to reset myself.

Thank you, everyone. The poll is up so I will not be taking any more suggestions for October.
