Ah, consistency! And in the light of all those bogus accusations about other books not being the first! Different rules apply, clearly.

Actually, the romance part is not part of a series.

I decided to look this up.

From Wikipedia (so do with it what you will): Remember When (novel)

Quote:
Remember When (2003) is a novel by Nora Roberts and J. D. Robb (the author, writing under two of her pseudonyms). The second half of the book is part of the In Death series, taking place between Imitation in Death and Divided in Death. The plot follows a diamond robbery, over a span of 56 years.
My take is that the 2nd part can either be read as part of the In Death series, or it can be read as a completion of the story about the diamond robbery. *Shrug*

With Asawi 3rding I capture the castle and if someone else with a vote 3rds Anyone but you, then we will have 9 out of 10 books, meaning we'll need one more book to be fully nominated.

I've used all 3 of my nods, so I'm hoping there are others who can and will step up so that we can get this show on the road....

I've used my 3 nods as well, but still desperately trying to think of something I want to read that would fit in the category. Just in case someone else would want to nominate it.
Not having much luck so far though...

Maybe one of the numerous vampire romance stories? Totally unknown territory for me, but apparently very popular...

I'll nominate Tropic of Cancer by Henry Miller.

Quote:
Now hailed as an American classic, Tropic of Cancer, Henry Miller's masterpiece, was banned as obscene in this country for twenty-seven years after its first publication in Paris in 1943. Only a historic court ruling that changed American censorship standards, ushering in a new era of freedom and frankness in modern literature, permitted the publication of this first volume of Miller's famed mixture of memoir and fiction, which chronicles with unapologetic gusto, the bawdy adventures of a young expatriate writer, his friends, and the characters they meet in Paris in the 1930s. Tropic of Cancer is now considered, as Norman Mailer said, "one of the ten or twenty great novels of our century."

Oh, Yay!!!! That will make 10 fully nominated books!!! Thank you Synamon!

Hopefully either Tom or Dreams will be by soon-ish to update the lists, and possibly start the voting thread.

I will be honest, I am completely and utterly shocked that you Jon would nominate part of a series that is the middle of a series, and then defend it when someone points that out.

This only because you have been such an incredibly steadfast proponent of never nominating one in a series if it's not the first, to such a degree that no explanation anyone ever gave you was good enough; you were adamant that no matter what, if it wasn't first in a series then it shouldn't ever be nominated and no explanation would ever change that for you.

So imagine my amazement and surprise at your nomination and defence of it. It seems that you must've had a change of heart to do that, and if so then I look forward to a new era where you support other novels in the middle of a series being nominated.
