September 2013's *Category* Nominations.

The September 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 5 days or 30 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
  • January: Second Chance No nominations this month. The polls will be comprised of selections that either came in second place or tied for second place during the previous 11 months.
  • February Romance
  • March Travel/Adventure
  • April Classics
  • May Mystery/Thriller
  • June Award Winners
  • July Non-Fiction
  • August Science Fiction
The 2012 Categories (for reference purposes):

Spoiler:
January — RunnerUp (no nominations, a vote of all the runners-up nominations from the last 11 months)
February — Romance
March — Thriller/Suspense
April — Humour
May — Fantasy
June — Classic
July — Mystery/Crime
August — FreeForAll
September — NonFiction
October — Horror
November — Science Fiction
December — Classic

Until now you've done nothing wrong.

It's a two-phase voting system. In the first phase you can nominate up to three categories or support the nominations of other members. The second phase is the "real" voting. You can choose as many categories as you like from the categories that got three votes in the first phase.

So that's a second for short stories. And one more makes three.
