It's time to nominate your choice for our October 2020 group fiction read - please use this thread to nominate.

Nominations start today and will close on 13th September (or as soon as the poll has six books).

During this time anybody can nominate and second one book each. You cannot second the book you have nominated. The 6 books with the most second votes at the end of the 7 day nomination period will go into the poll. There are no limits to the number of seconds a book can receive, although please be mindful of this as most times we do not receive enough nominations for the poll to open.

The poll will then run until the 17th October and the winner will be announced shortly after. I hope this will leave everybody with enough time to obtain the chosen book.

Please also check that your chosen nomination hasn't been a group read in the past. You can do this by looking at the group bookshelf, contact one of the moderators or post on 'Ask the Moderators' thread

If you have any questions on the nominations process please contact me, use the 'Ask the Moderators' thread or post on here and we will be happy to help.

Karin | 1928 comments I am passing as I am in the throes of a 10 month reading game (team game) that I am fully enjoying, but am now reading strategically. I will be back to my more normal GR stuff come November :)

If it doesn't win this time, you're more than welcome to organise it. I don't really have issues with repeating books in the nominations.
