August 2013's *Category* Nominations.

The August 2013 category selection will be similar to the other category selections we have done so far for 2013. We'll have one poll after all nominations are in; there will be no run-off poll except in case of a tie. If a second poll also results in a tie, I'll cast my vote as the tie-breaker.

* This thread will be open for 7 days or 21 fully seconded and thirded nominations, whichever comes first.

* The poll will be up for 4 days.

* Three votes or nominations per member.

The story thus far:
Quote:
The 2013 MobileRead Book Club Monthly Categories

  • February Romance

  • April Classics
  • May Mystery/Thriller
  • June Award Winners
  • July Non-Fiction
The 2012 Categories (for reference purposes):

Spoiler:

February — Romance
March — Thriller/Suspense
April — Humour
May — Fantasy
June — Classic
July — Mystery/Crime
August — FreeForAll
September — NonFiction

That could work, and it goes with the "3" theme.

I bought one for you the other day, but since it was a losing ticket I didn't bother to mail it.

But if it had won, you'd have had to turn it over and give up the winnings.

I'll second lottery version 3.

I'll nominate books by Japanese authors, where the author must have been born in Japan.

I'll also nominate books written between 1987 and 2002 (inclusive). That's right, the original (not re-release or re-publish, or new notes editions) must have been published between 1987 and 2002 inclusively. No 2003 books, no 1986 books.
