No one's nominated FreeForAll yet? That would've been my fourth nom as I think March would be a good month for it.

I nominate Free for All!

That was my favourite category from last year, so many interesting options to choose from.

Based on the argument over adventure/travel can I use one of my nominations to cancel someone else's nomination for that? To get serious I will third major award winners, unless Caleb has already done that. I will third indie. I will nominate modern literature..

If John F and Hamlet can agree on the noms, I'll third modern fic/lit.
Tomato, tomahto, please consider these two merged, and with Issybird's vote, also now having a third. I must have been typing my post while John F was posting his.

I'll nominate Non-fiction and Classics.

A 3rd name is missing from The Mystery nomination, I assume it should have been mine, meaning I have 2 more votes.

With that in mind, I will 2nd "Free For All" and nominate "Fantasy".

I'll nominate Young Adult{again) and will third Fantasy.

It doesn't appear that anyone has nominated 'classic: so I'll use my third nomination to do so.

I nominate a "Lottery" month like the Literary Book Club has.

Their current (August 2012) rule was that anyone could enter their name to a list to select the book and the moderator would roll a random number to see which person on the list gets to select the book. The book would still need to follow the rule of not being selected before in order to be eligible. See this post for how the lottery works there.

I'll third(?) Non-Fiction. Would also successfully subsume some of the other suggestions such as "Biography".

Hm.. I think we need one more vote for Greek Philosophy..?

I would never try to persuade someone to vote for Greek Philophy. But.. Do you know what 'Platonic Love' really means? Some girls talk about this stuff on the phone sometimes: I really like you, let's stay 'platonic friends'..

Wouldn't it bee the coolest thing on earth to explain 'Platonic Love' to this girl in this situation? Well, of course we'd need to know what 'Platonic Love' exactly is. And Eros. And Friendship. It's only 50-70 pages.. Very easy to understand.. And free to download, of course.

But feel free to vote whatever you like. No need to vote for Greek Philosophy.

Are you suggesting that Greek Philosophy is a single book of 50-70 pages? Seriously though, Philosophy (not just Greek) might make an interesting category. I still don't think that that as a category would likely garner enough votes to be end up being selected as the category for the month. Limiting it to Greek Philosophy would make it so specialized that I can't see that being voted in as a category at all. Recall that if that happened at least 10 ebooks would have to be nominated in that category. Now that I have made this observation maybe I will be proved wrong and March 2013 will be the Greek Philosophy month.

Actually what I am curious to see is if it will occur that with Mystery/Thriller in the running once more the same category as last year will be selected. It has already happened for the two months that had been reconsidered, though February was close.
