Hi all! Starting up the monthly discussions for November 2019 book-of-the-month suggestions. This discussion is for the MODERN CLASSIC/POPULAR category.

Books that qualify for this category:

1. Must have a publication date 1970 or after. For older books, please make your suggestion on the Classics thread.

2. Have not been previously ready by this group. Previously read books can be nominated in the Bookshelf Catchup thread. See the group's Bookshelf for previously read books.

3. Be reasonably well-read to fit the "Everyone Has Read This but Me" claim.

Not a hard and fast rule, but please try to limit your nominations to one book per category. But please do second any that interest you! The number of seconds determine poll inclusion.

>>> Attention, please: We will be featuring page numbers in the poll, so please include page numbers in your nomination if possible.

Nominations end Midnight September 15.
