No worries.


I'm very exited about the poll for March. Of the 10 current official nominees there are 7 in which I'm interested, plus Young Adult, should it be fully nominated.

No nomination, but I will second Young Adult and Lottery. I'll third Greek Philosophy. March has so many wonderful nominations!

Actually I'll third Greek Philosophy. It's my last nomination (I think). I was tempted to do it before but I wasn't sure if it was a joke nomination or not.

I'm quite interested in reading Plato's The Republic and would enjoy a discussion on it (even if I might end up being out of my depth).

Oops. I thought about Symposium, not Republic.

Anyway, we'll argue about this in the next thread.

I only lean towards The Republic because I happen to own an old hardback of it and I thought it might be nice actually reading it. I wouldn't have a problem with Symposium. The nature of love - sounds like a really interesting topic to read about/discuss.

Request/Suggestion:

Since we haven't had any additional nominations in the last 24 hours, could we have the poll now?

I'd rather wait until the time specified in the first post to account for any late stragglers. I could shorten the nominations from one week to four days for the next one, though.

Understandable & fair.

Four days sounds good to me, if there are no other objections.

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've used up all my nominations but I'll add moral support for a lottery month.

Whoops! I see that it has already been fully nominated.

Assuming there are no new nominations, I like 9 out of the 14. I might be okay with a 10th, but I'm not sure.

The actual poll is not up as yet. This is/was the nomination process. The poll should be up sometime in the next 24 hours.
