Any book currently on our bookshelf can be nominated. Below is a list of the past years winners.

Rebecca, May 2015
The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, April 2015
The Scarlet Pimpernel, March 2015
Pride and Prejudice, February 2015

Wuthering Heights, September 2014
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, August 2014
The Picture of Dorian Gray, July 2014

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

As always feel free to second a nomination and make comments about the nominated books. Remember to avoid Spoilers, any eligible nomination in this category is a past group read and has open discussion threads for spoilers.

Nominations will run from today thru the May 14th. Polls will open on the 16th and end on May 31th

I second this.
