August. Wow, time has gone quickly this year.
well by now you should know what to do. but for our newer members.
to nominate a book to read for our BOM. you simply suggest a book that you would like the group to read and discuss.

make sure you have the books name and author(it will make the poll easier to do).

and if it is a series please put the first one of the series, unless we have already read the series in a recent previous BOM.(No more that 4 months please.)

Lastly please Nominate One book only.(this makes the poll results clearer).

so please join in on the fun!

We are currently reading Evermore by Alyson Noel. If you have previously read this and would love to tell us what you think about it(or if you want to join in on the group read).
Please Follow the link and post your comment.

message 12: by Alicia (last edited Jul 13, 2011 02:54PM) (new)

Alicia (writeralicia) Everlasting is the sixth in a series, and the group has only read book one, as far as I can tell. Does this book qualify to be the August BOM?

Gosh i missed that, Thanks Alicia for picking that up(i would have picked it up when doing the poll, by then it's too late!).

No it doesn't qualify as a nomination for the BOM.
but the 2nd book does.

@April and Justine you can either nominate the second book or choose another book. which one would you like to do? at this stage your nomination will not count, until you get back to me that is.

@Katie, we have already read Vampire academy, if you are wanting to read it as a greoup. pop into the buddy reads area and you will find a buddy read there! would you like to nominate something else?

To check out what we have read.go to the groups bookshelf. There you will find a shelf named BOM and it has all the past BOM'S on it. Alternatively,
http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/5...
this link has all the books we have read as a group for the BOM.
ok, so it needs updating. it's on my to do list. :o)

EDIT: Now it is off my to do list! It is now a current list of what we have read!

Thank you. One more question for you, is there way to post events at my blog for you all to see?

I just wanted to pop in and say that I have read Pale Demon and it without a doubt one of my fave books in the genre. The story is so subtle and so well written. It's the kind of book that when you get to the last few pages you start to slow down, trying to stretch it out because you don't want it to end.

Beth, sorry about the late reply,
i'm trying to set up an area for book bloggers such as yourself.
but for the moment if you want to just create a new topic in the members work folder.
I'll move it into the new area once i have set it up.
