It's time to nominate your choice for our October 2019 group fiction read - please use this thread to nominate.

Nominations start today and will close on 10 September 2019 or when we filled the poll with six books.

During this time anybody can either nominate or second a book. The 6 books with the most second votes at the end of the 7 day nomination period will go into the poll. Each person can either nominate one book or second one book. There are no limits to the number of seconds a book can receive.

The poll will then run until the 16 September 2019 and the winner will be announced shortly after. I hope this will leave everybody with enough time to obtain the chosen book.

Please only nominate, second or vote for a book you will read with the group if it should win. Please also check that your chosen nomination hasn't been a group read in the past. You can do this by looking at the group bookshelf, contact one of the moderators or post on 'Ask the Moderators' thread

If you have any questions on the nominations process please contact me, use the 'Ask the Moderators' thread or post on here and we will be happy to help.
