Short Stories for me! Is that a third?
Humor as well I think that's a second.
Short Stories received its "3rd" from Hamlet53. So you have one nomination slot back.

I'll nominate Fantasy. It would be nice to have Science Fiction and Fantasy back to back.

I'll nominate MobileRead Classic (must be in the MobileRead library). It should be at least 50 years old.

I will nominate Classics where the book has to have been written after WWII and the author is still alive at the time of the initial nomination. So no dead authors are allowed and no really old and obsolete stories.

I will second Fantasy.

Is this the same as Modern Literature in that the books have to have been originally written in the last 10 years and no republished versions?

Great way to kill interest in the bookclub for those who aren't into this.

You do know that some of the books uploaded are not legally available to people outside Canada and the other life+50 countries, right?

This won't fly. Legally they have to be 70 years old for those of us from the US to be able to download them. Please consider dropping this one.

What about all the other categories that are not of interest to others that have already been nominated? Same deal.

To be clear: Is this a serious nomination?

I didn't mean to imply that you HAD to download them from MR. And I didn't mean to encourage anyone to violate copyright.

I would hope that the nomination would be at least life +70, OR, would be available through libraries, but that seemed too complicated to convey in a category nomination.
