The Far Northside Co-Ed Book Club Message Board › Book Nominations (May, June and July)

Book Nominations (May, June and July)

Tracey C
Group Organizer
Chicago, IL
Hi everyone!

It's that time again; time to send me nominations for a book poll to determine the books for May, June and July. Please email me your nominations by Tuesday, April 3rd at 7 pm. Once the nomination process is closed, you will receive an email that the poll is up and ready for you to vote.

As a reminder, and for the benefit of the new folks:

  • You may nominate more than one book however, depending on the number of nominations received, and in an effort to avoid having an overly cumbersome book poll, I may not get to use more than one nomination per person. If you do nominate more than one book, please let me know which one takes priority.
  • Please remember that, while you are welcome to nominate any book(s) you would like, the books should be something that can be discussed as a group. Very specialized books (i.e. something field of work related) and others may not promote much conversation with the group as a whole so please keep this in mind when coming up with nominations.
  • Along those same lines, we do not have a set genre with this group and I don't push themes for nominations. You may nominate anything from classics to NY Times Best Sellers.
  • The success of the book club depends on participation from everyone. If you have a few books you've been wanting to read but haven't had a chance to, throw them in to the pot if you think they might make a good group read!

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Thank you!

Sounds from last week like something light and easy to read may be called for after several books about violence and paralysis. For fans of action, this wouldn't be a good book, but one of the most beautifully-crafted stories I've ever read from a character development and setting perspective. There's definitely a sorrowful tone to it and the short story, Moonshadow, that comes with it at the end, but it's one of my favorites and an extremely easy read too for those tight on time:
