Yes, I'm almost feeling guilty nominating a fiction option. I almost didn't once I saw that the first batch of nominations was resoundingly non-fiction. I mainly went ahead and nominated because it's what I intended previously. I was even a bit surprised that it was fully nominated.
I guess I underestimated the appeal of a public domain/free piece of fiction. Or maybe I underestimated the appeal of Jules Verne himself.
I know looking at the other nominations I would have found reading one of them to be a bit expensive for me as nearly none of them are in an e-library I currently have access to and the price of paperback would have been relatively exorbitant given my lack of interest in the topic.
I did see In Patagonia
in one of those bargain table set-ups last weekend and I was excited until I realised they were charging $12 for a second-hand paperback.
