Good nomination, but it will be up against tough competition from so many other good categories for the final 2013 slot. Heh, this final 2013 poll will be sort of like a final-category-of-2013 death match where 16 or so enter, and only one survives.

I like your nomination in theory. Since there's so many good categories that haven't been picked yet, and only one month left, it's inclusive to just have a sort of "Everything Else" category.

But in practice, it may not work out so well... Let's see, the book will have to be fiction (no Non-Fiction), it can't be in the MR Library or a Classic so it'll have to be newer and not public-domain, it can't have been banned or challenged anywhere and it also can't have won any awards anywhere, and on top of all that the story can't include any Science Fiction, Mystery, Thriller, Travel, Adventure or Romance.

A book that meets all that criteria sounds like it would be terrible! But to be honest, I'd like to see the category make it, just to see what books people actually come up with that would fit!
