How quickly a month passes, even in these extraordinary times.

Nominations are now open until May 22nd for the July 2020 Open Pick.

Nominating guidelines:
- Fiction (original & translation, if applicable) first published between January 1, 2000 and July 1, 2019. For translations the latter date must be an English edition.
- One nomination per person (please do not nominate or vote for a book unless you are certain you can read and discuss if it wins)
- A book this group has not yet read (see the group bookshelf or the Index of all Group Reads here)
- A book that is not better suited to the wild card (genre) category

If you are nominating, please begin your post by stating "I nominate [name with hyperlink to book]"

The discussion will start on July 1st

We will have a wild card pick starting later in July - nominations for that will start in a couple of weeks.

Thanks Linda. If it doesn't win this time we'll have to make it a moderator pick.
