Time to start thinking about the next book club group read for March/April.

Post your nomination here so we can get a poll up by the middle of February. I am trying to get a head start instead of the last minute.

No self nominations.

Here is a link to books already read by the group:

Cheryl (cherylllr) | 872 comments I just realized today that I still have Bittersweet Memories: A Novel on my tablet, unread. I most heartily apologize to the author, Lynn Osterkamp, who sent me a copy because I specially asked for one! So I'll nominate that, and if it doesn't win, I hope to read it immediately after the poll closes in Feb.!

OMG! I forget to read it! I still have it marked “to read.” I guess I was behind and forgot to go read it. 🤦🏼‍♀️

Ok, I checked the list 😁 and I will nominate The Eyre Affair.

Cheryl (cherylllr) | 872 comments The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August was the monthly read in November 2014. https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

Apparently nobody shelved it, so you had no way of knowing that we'd read it. (I remember being disappointed by it, so that's how I knew.)

I added the book to the shelves. I liked it.

I would read it again.


message 14: by Cheryl (new)

Cheryl (cherylllr) | 872 comments We could always reopen the original thread, as we did for Many-Coloured Land. Then it would be kinda like a Buddy Read. I'd be willing to try again.

Samantha Glasser | 208 comments How about Pirate Freedom by Gene Wolfe?
Pirate Freedom

Or Island in the Sea of Time by S. M. Stirling?
Island in the Sea of Time

Anyone can set up a buddy read. If anyone wants to read it, I am sure adding to the existing thread would be fine.


message 17: by Cheryl (new)

Cheryl (cherylllr) | 872 comments Right. Sydney, would you like to go to that thread and 're-open' it?

Meanwhile I guess we're up to four nominations for the 'official' group read. Would you like me to come up with another, Nancy?

Sure, if you have another nomination. I’ll give it another couple days just to see if we get any more then put up a poll.


message 19: by Cheryl (new)

Cheryl (cherylllr) | 872 comments Thank you. I do also have a short story anthology, Time After Time, ed. by Denise Little, languishing on my shelf. I need an excuse to read it and offer it out on paperbackswap. :)

Steven (politicoprof) | 73 comments I nominate Lightning by Dean Koontz and Forever by Pete Hamill.

Great! Lots of choices. I will close the thread to new nominations and get a poll up.
