It's time once again to nominate your choices for our last group classics read of 2020, this time for November and December 2020. For convenience, we at AAB are defining a 'classic' as a book that was first published 50 or more years ago, i.e. first published in 1970 or earlier.

Nominations will be run for 10 days and will close late on 13 October 2020 or when we hit six books in the poll. The poll will then until the 19th October 2020.

During this time anybody can nominate and second a book. The 6 books with the most second votes at the end of the 10 day nomination period will go into the poll. Each person can either nominate one book or second one book. There are no limits to the number of seconds a book can receive, although please be mindful as our polls do not fill up as quickly as they used to.

Please only nominate, second or vote for a book you will read with the group if it should win. 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 or browsing through the Group Fiction folder.

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