I figured we should get this ball rolling before it gets too close to Xmas. Next week is going to be a busy one, for sure!

Let me quickly cover the rules!
~ONE nomination per person.
~The post must contain the TITLE and AUTHOR name.
~Do not second or third a nomination that has been posted, it is not necessary to do that.

We will have until Friday nite to get the nominations in. Once the nomination period is over, I will close the thread and post a voting poll. I will then announce voting time :)

If you do not follow the rules posted above, the nomination will not be accepted. Lets please keep this as clean and neat as possible.

Cant wait to see what everyone comes up with!

Lori (TNBBC) | 9509 comments Mod
oh no.. only 33 posts in and we are already getting confused.

The Book Gobbler, we are currently nominating books, not voting. If you want to nominate one for us to vote on later, read the threads and decide on one that is not listed yet. Please go back and delete your other posts, thanks!

Angela, are you going to choose something else? If you can, please delete your original post so I dont grab it twice by accident.

message 46: by Chloe (last edited Dec 16, 2008 06:10PM) (new)

Chloe (lolosrun) | 1129 comments No Twilight. Everyone's already either read it or talked it to death. It should just go away and die at this point.
