It is that time again when I start compiling a book ballot. If you have a book you would like to see on the ballot, please send me the name and title before 5/22. As a reminder, selections must be available in soft back and be 600 pages or less.

For selections to count, you must reply to this post with your nominations.

Happy reading.

From Beverly:
I nominate "HOME" by Toni Morrison.
I assume it is soft bound because TM is very well known and the publisher is Alfred Knopf, but I haven't checked that out. It's short, 145 pages.
