2018 is practically over. Can you believe it? It's time to start organizing our January group read.

First we have to choose the theme. So let's do it.

Members can pick any theme they want, so long as it has some degree of action/adventure content, even if it is part of another subgenre.

We're not looking for books right now. Just themes.

Please feel free to include a definition of the theme for clarification.

The poll is going up on December 8th.

**Themes so far:

*Urban Fantasy Action
*Urban Action Setting
*WWI/WWII Espionage
*Vintage Mystery (Victorian or other historical)/Thrillers
*Dystopian/End of the World
*Spy/Modern Action Thriller
*Classic Adventure

I added everyone's nominations except I wasn't sure what you meant by history link, Andrew. Can you clarify?

I added urban setting as a separate theme because they are kind of different. I'm thinking Shaft or The French Connection versus Harry Dresden. Does that make sense?

Hi, Susan. I can add Classic Adventure since it has to fit the theme of the group.

The poll is up. It will only last five days since we lost time when I fell into the finals black hole. Sorry about that!
