It's time for everyone to nominate a book for our May 2019 group read.

BUT - our format has changed for 2019!

There will be twelve tasks - a different one each month - open for nomination to fit that task.

For May's read we are looking for books with an Aussie author
So, nominate a crime/mystery/thriller/suspense book to cover May's task :)

Don't forget - 1st in a series, if a series

This thread will be open until 10th April, then nominations will go to the vote.

Authors and publishers, please don't nominate your own work!

Hi Col, it has to be the first book in a series, so did you want to nominate Harry's World by A.B. Patterson instead?

My apologies, in my rush to nominate I didn't check properly which one came first. Harry's World - please!

It gets confusing when they re-name a book and re-release it as a "new title"!!

I thought Wimmera was renamed as Into the River. I think The Rip is his second book.
