Please post a comment below to nominate a book for the group to read for March 2020.

Please use the "add book/author" link just above the comment box to insert a link to the Goodreads book page for the book you are nominating, so other members can more easily assess it. Apparently this only works on the desktop version of the site; if you use the app, the link is not available yet.

You may nominate a book which has been suggested previously and did not win. You may nominate more than one book, but we might not include all of your nominations in the voting.

Please do not nominate a book which is unlikely to be available to all members, such as one which was just published within the last three months or which is only available on Kindle in the U.S.

Nominations will close on January 20 or when we have about 10 good nominations, whichever occurs first.

Paul  Perry (pezski) | 40 comments I'll give another go for The Book of Humans: The Story of How We Became Us by Adam Rutherford, just because he's such a good writer and I've not read this one yet.

It's scary, but good.

This book is a little too new. It was just published November 1, 2019. Wait several months and you can nominate it again.

This is our selection for February 2020.

Marc (marc-0880) | 3 comments So what's the cutoff for how new a book can be? September 2019 is okay for February 2020 and November 2019 is too recent for March 2020; it's 3 or 4 months then?

Daniel Aviles | 8 comments I would like to nominate Void: The Strange Physics of Nothing

Three months. But it's not absolute. It's also affected by how many editions are available.

By my count, we have eight nominations. There are two more days before the close of nominations.
