Jenny (diggensjenny) Hello, fellow Crime, Mystery & Thriller Readers,


Nominations for our (March) Classic Book Discussion are now open. To ensure your nomination will be included in our poll, please make sure it conforms to the following guidelines:

✔️ You may nominate one (1) book.

✔️Only members who have actively participated in prior book discussions will be permitted to nominate books for the following month. If you have recently joined the group, please do participate in the current month's discussion so you qualify as a valid nominator.

✔️By entering a nomination you are agreeing to act as our Discussion Leader for the month-long Book Discussion for that book, if it wins.

Don't worry it is neither difficult nor time consuming. The moderators are here to help in the event that you need a hand. Please refrain from nominating a book if you are not prepared to lead the discussion.

✔️ Your nomination should be a Classic crime, mystery, or thriller. Classic as defined by this group is a book which is at least 50 years old (1969 or before).

✔️Your nomination should not have been read by the group in the past 24 months.

✔️You may only nominate the first book in a series.

The 2nd and subsequent books in a series may be nominated only after the group has read the prior books in that series.

✔️Post your nomination as a comment below.

DO NOT notify the moderators of your selection by way of a private message, if you do you run the risk of your nomination being excluded from the poll.

✔️To ensure your nomination is included in our poll correctly, do include the name of both the book and the author.You would be surprised at how many books have the same title. You are welcome to use the "add book/author" tool, which is located above the right upper corner of the comment window when you nominate your selection.

If you have any questions, you can leave a comment in this discussion or message Gem or Jenny directly.

The nomination period will close on Sunday, (Gem will notify members) at approximately 7:3o pm PDT (UTC/GMT -7).

Polling will begin on Wednesday, (Gem will notify members).

Thank you and happy reading!
The Crime, Mystery & Thriller Moderators

Barbara K | 328 comments I nominate Dread Journey by Dorothy B. Hughes. I’ve only recently become aware of Hughes and I added this to my TBR list - it seems as if it might be timely in the #metoo era. Available in print, ebook and audio.
