The nominations thread for the February Classics Read is now open, please suggest your book choices below.

Please note there will be no pre and post-1900 rule from now on. Any classic book will count.

All books need to be seconded by someone else in order to get to the voting stage.

Travels with My Aunt automatically goes forward (again) to the poll as it was runner-up last time, and does not need to be nominated or seconded.

This thread will remain open until 13th January and then will be closed for voting.

Nominated:
Orlando
World of Strangers
The Good Soldier Švejk

Nominated and Seconded:
Travels with My Aunt
Cold Comfort Farm
East of Eden
Far From the Madding Crowd

Pat Morris-jones | 1369 comments Have we done Tess of The Durbervilles? If not I nominate this one. My favourite book. Except the 3 little wolves and the big bad pig. That’s the best! Sadly not a classic, although maybe ought to be.

Debbie | 585 comments Travels with my Aunt sounds hilarious. I am going to choose between Rebecca or Cold Comfort Farm as part of my Dusty Bookshelf challenge (longest on shelf).
Have either of those been read already?

It is. Cold Comfort Farm hasn't ever been read by us, Debbie

Pat Morris-jones | 1369 comments Ok. Thanks Paul. Will have to do my re read at my own pace then. Prob 2 years out of date with Book Vipers.

Yay, thank you Jason. It's been on my TBR for years, never got around to reading it. It is supposedly very funny.

Karen O | 21 comments I'd like to nominate East of Eden if it hasn't already been read.

Eva I second East of Eden!

Becky | 161 comments Eva beat me to it. I was going to second East of Eden as I'm planning to read it soon anyway. I'll second Far from the Madding Crowd instead.

Jazzy Lemon (jazzylemon) | 274 comments I would love to read The Good Soldier Švejk by Jaroslav Hašek as I took a cheeky deeks at the first two chapters and it's bloody hilarious!

Love this book and used to watch and during my childhood I used to watch my parents laugh their heads off watching an old German film about depicting this story from I think the 50s or 60s.
