The past years winners are always eligible for nomination, however ask yourself do we want to read the same book twice in one year?

Only one nominations per member

I am reading it now for the second time. If you have never read this before, I suggest you go to this site:

TSATF is one of my favorite books, but it is very difficult in places, primarily the first two sections, although I found the first section very accessible, but that's me. The site I mentioned has a wealth of information.
Of course, since I love this book I want everyone to have a great experience with it!

Janet (goodreadscomjanetj) | 852 comments I renominate A Farewell to Arms

message 12: by Pink (new)

Pink | 6556 comments These all look great choices so far, either I've read and loved them, or they're high on my TBR list!

For now I'll second The Tenant of Wildfell Hall

I've read Agnes Grey and think that Anne could be my favourite Bronte sister, plus this one's supposed to be even better.
