There is still one final point that needs deciding for 2012: If a book becomes fully nominated, then it will be ineligible for six months.

I don't think it needs a vote, Tom can just decide. Tom, when I first suggested it, you asked what everyone thought and here were some of the responses:

Personally, I'm in favour of it too and I see it as similar to the stipulation that a book can't be nominated any more after being chosen as a month's selection.

Having this will also I think keep nominations in their rightful categories, as people will more often wait to nominate a book in its rightful category, but without it, people can nominate that same book in any category over and over.
