message 1: by Agnese (new)

Agnese | 55 comments To give you more time to prepare and acquire the books (if necessary), we would like to invite you all to start nominating books for our October group selection.

The rules remain the same: each member can nominate ONE book from the list of 100 Best Books by Women Writers in Translation and second ONE nomination by another member.

The last day for nominating & seconding is September 5.

On September 6, the most popular books will be put into a final poll and you'll be able to vote for one book that you would like to see as our October selection.

Results for next month’s selection will be announced on September 9.

Happy nominating!

I'd like to second that one - I just pulled it out yesterday to reread. The first time I read it was on a road trip where a friend & I read it to each other, and I can't say that I was able to completely take it in. So I'd like to read it a bit more deeply than last time. I need to take a look at the list before I nominate anything.
