Nominations for our June read are now open. It's an Open Choice month, so any genre welcome!


Criteria:
1. Book must be by a female author (transwomen and women using male pseudonyms are women).
2. No books that have already been group reads (see our list of previous reads)
3. You cannot nominate a book you have written yourself.

How to Nominate:
1. Give both the title of the book and the author's name when nominating to avoid mix-ups. Title only nominations may be missed
2. Please use the 'add book/author' button when nominating otherwise your nomination risks being missed.
3. Please indicate whether you are willing to lead discussion on the book.
4. Try to avoid using this thread for chatter as it makes it very hard to locate what are actual nominations and what is just discussion. If you really want to discuss something, please drop it in a spoiler tag.
5. One nomination per person.

Nominations will close on 8 April when the poll will go up.

Hi Isabelle, we read The Price of Salt as a group read last August so I'm afraid it's not eligible for rereading as a group so soon.

Feel free to nominate something else instead!

Sorry for that but I totally skipped it. Is there a list where we can check before nominating? I’ll try another one then: Valley of the Dolls by Jacqueline Susann.

Of course! Open choice means pretty much anything goes.

Would you be happy to lead discussion if it wins?


message 14: by Lyn (new)

Lyn Jensen | 22 comments I see some great choices, but I'll add "The Honor Was Mine" by Elizabeth Heaney. I can lead.
