I would also like to point out that classics have always been nominated and accepted in every genre for every month in this club. Not to mention that we also now have a seperate book club devoted entirely to Classics.
So it is perfectly reasonable to now have one of the "classic" months changed to something else.
A continuation in my appeal for having one of the classic months changed:

Wild Card (no nominations, a vote of all the non-winning nominations from the last 11 months)

Classic - 1; Non Classic -1

February

Romance

Classic - 2; Non Classic -2

March
Nonfiction

Classic - 3; Non Classic -3

April
Humor

Classic - 4; Non Classic - 4

May
Classic

Classic - 5; Non Classic - 4

June
Thriller/Suspense

Classic - 6; Non Classic - 5

July
Fantasy (trees/magic)

Classic - 7; Non Classic -6

August
Free For All (any genre)

Classic - 8; Non Classic - 7

September
Mystery/Crime

Classic - 9; Non Classic - 8


October

Horror

Classic - 10; Non Classic - 9

November

Science Fiction (rivets/science)

Classic - 11; Non Classic -10

December
Classic

Classic - 12; Non Classic -10



12 to 10 = Advantage = unequal opportunity.
Alternates: Young Adult, Historical Fiction, Award Winning Works.

EDIT: Yes, we had a vote that said 20 to 12 for two months of classics, but we also had a vote that said 17 to 10 for Hidden only polls, yet here we are with a run-off vote that was tied, and a compromise for every 3rd month being open... that's right a COMPROMISE.

Well we would still have one month of Classics, its not like we're getting rid of it altogether.
