Renato (renatomrocha) April 2015 Nominations - Old School Classics group read

1.) Books that have already been featured as group reads, and currently on our bookshelf are not eligible to be nominated.

Bookshelf link:

2.) Only books that were published before 1900 are eligible to be nominated in this section.

3.) Only one nomination, and one second, per member! Please, seconds welcomed! Seconding a nomination is a fun way to participate in the nomination process, if you don't have a favorite that you'd like to nominate at this time. Plus, it's fun to see an early indication of interest. :)

4.) Nominations will remain open until midnight of the 14th; book polls will be open from the 16th of the month thru midnight of the last day of the month.

Christine | 1218 comments I'd like to nominate Far from the Madding Crowd. I've never read it before, but I saw that a feature film adaptation of this book is being released in a few months, and I'd love to read the book before I see the movie.
