Thanks. The wife was rushing me out the door while I was writing that, so at least I've got an excuse for that typo!

Just to be very clear, no one is asked to do anything differently when nominating a book. No rules have been changed. No one is saying that a ebook has to be available in every country. Here is the additional wording which will appear in the second post of the nominating thread, along with a tally of the nominated books:

Quote:
Wondering if a particular book is available in your country? The following spoiler contains a list of bookstores outside the United States you can search. If you don't see a bookstore on this list for your country, find one that is, sent me the link via PM, and I'll add it to the list. In addition, if members let me know that an ebook is unavailable in a particular geographic location, I'll note it in this post, right beside the Inkmesh search for that particular book.
Just to say this before the new year, I like everything you've added except the last bolded line. I know it's been allowed to happen before but I don't like it nor do I like the change to add a sentence to the template encouraging it, for the reasons I posted in my long previous post.

This was first time voting but the first thing I checked was if I could find them and how much they cost. Found both... next month, Romance should be interesting, first time for everything I guess!

I have read the first two chapters of Black Rain. I will read it relatively slowly, one chapter in each reading, 0-2 readings/day.

I must admit, the Translation Notes by John Bester has piqued my interest and calmed my fears about the story being all doom & gloom.

No, it's not a doom and gloom story! Or rather, I guess the story is pretty sad, but not written in a dark way. Granted I'm only 30-something pages into it, but it's very nice so far!

Extra family members have just left the house, and my young ones are playing outside together, so I'm going to try and sneak in the first chapter or two, now.

I knew I shouldn't have said that out loud. There is no time when a mother is needed more than when she's trying to do something else. *sigh*

Currently reading two other books, but I picked up the e-book version of Black Rain from Amazon. It'll replace a book on my 2012 reading list which is a bonus for me. Not sure when I'll start it, maybe near the third week of January.
