Nominations are now open for May 2019!

Amanda Flower, Beverly Lewis, Sarah Price and Ruth Reid are exempt from nomination as we've already read one of their books this year, although we may make exceptions for novella collections that include one of these authors. If you're not sure if your book is eligible for nomination, please leave a comment and one of the moderators will get back to you!

Rules:
1. Any Amish-themed novel is eligible.
2. One nomination per person.
3. If two people nominate the same book, each person's vote counts. So the book will feature twice in the list to give each vote an equal chance.
4. Nominations run until the 14th of the month, with the winner announced on the 15th.
5. The winning book is chosen using Random.org to make it completely fair.
6. Please don't nominate a book we have already read. You can see our list of previous group reads here: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/... or look at the group read's bookshelf here: https://www.goodreads.com/group/books... (it includes the Christian group read as well).
7. Only nominate the first book in a series UNLESS we have already read #1 (see above link). In this case, #2 is then eligible for nomination!

Nominate away!!

Sorry for the delay folks -- it's been a c-r-a-z-y week and time got away from me.

Our read for next month is... The Amish Inn: Amish Romance (The Amish of Hope Valley, #1) by Emma Schwartz. Thanks for the nomination Carolyn.

Carolyn V another book to get off my kindle shelf. I can't believe how fast April is going; I'm sure that's the way it will be for the next 6 months.
I now, have a reason to sit out if the weather is finally pleasant, and read
