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

Nominations start today and will close on 10th October (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 15th 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

I nominate 22/11/63 by Stephen King, probably a long one but if it wins, I might stretch it across two months.

Nancy (nancyhamer) | 254 comments I'd like to nominate The Angel's Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafón. We have read The Shadow of the Wind, the first in the series. I am saddened to learn of his death in June of this year. So many wonderful books he wrote. So many more he could have written.

I'm not sure about this one if I'm honest Margaret. I have added it anyways but it still looks fairly new so it may harder for a lot of our members to get a hold of it.
