Lisa (lisadannatt) | 184 comments Hi all

Nominations for June will be open from 1- 8 May,
Due to the length of some of this months books and sheer volume of awesome books on these lists, we thought we would try keeping nominations to two categories per month.
I have also added updated lists of books read in these categories.
Each book only needs to be nominated once.

Categories for June are:

State of the Nation

Both excellent choices!

I am going to nominate:

Vineland by Thomas Pynchon for State of the Nation and

The New York Trilogy by Paul Auster for Crime

OOO Vineland! :-)
I was going to nominate before I set up polls since there are so few nominations this month, but I want to read 3/4 of the nominated books and am afraid to dilute the polls!

Anyways, polls are up! Happy voting, everyone!
