Welcome and Nominations

Welcome all.

We look forward to hearing what you have to say about the books we've chosen, and seeing what books you want to read.

The basic rules for nominating a book:

  • it must be available in English (whether it's in translation or originally written in English)

  • it should be somewhere around a grade five/ten year old reading level or above-a chapter book

  • you must provide title and author

  • it should be readily available from major booksellers and/or libraries

  • And with that, I open nominations for first book, to be read in April and discussed in May.

    Some possibilities
    "Coraline" by Neil Gaiman

    "The Giver" by Lois Lowry (she just won the ALA's equivalent of like, a lifetime acheivement award, so this one would be a timely and classic choice)

    "Make Lemonade" by Virginia Euwer Wolff

    "The Liberation of Gabriel King" by K.L Going (haven't read this yet, but it's on top of my pile currently)

    I think "The Giver" is my personal first choice from that list, but I offer them all for the sake of variety. :)
