November 2013's *Category* Nominations

The November 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:

  • May: Mystery/Thriller
  • June: Award Winners
  • July: Non-Fiction

The 2012 Categories (for reference purposes):

Spoiler:

Like the sound of that. I haven't serious read any graphic novels for a few years, but would like to again, so I'll second it.

Might be hard to get ebook versions though?

I haven't read graphic novels for ages, but lately I heard that Uluysses of James Joyce had been made into a graphic novel. And I wondered wether other MR-ers know of more such books.
I don't mean to nominate horror/superman and such........

It is a bit of an experiment, but if someone thinks it isn't right, I'll withdraw my nomination, no problem.
