Post Lottery Nominations March 2012 • The MR Literary Club

Help us select the work that the MR Literary Club will read for March 2012!

Nominations will run through March 9th.


The category for this month is:

Lottery - A member is chosen by random to select the month's work


To be eligible, a member needs to have voted or nominated a work in each month since the last Lottery, so December, January and February.

Each participant may nominate oneself only. There are no seconds, thirds or so on.

To nominate yourself, simply post your nomination. It will be helpful if you also provide instances of your votes and/or nominations for December, January and February (simply name one work you voted/nominated for each of December, January and February).

A member will be randomly chosen from the nominees on March 9th, using a randomisation generator.

After the member is chosen, I will start a new vote thread, and the winner should post their choice for the March selection. The member may choose any work they consider "literature", except for works chosen by either book club in the last two years.

Once the selection has been posted, it will need TEN confirmation votes to declare it our monthly selection. The criteria for confirming is simply to agree that the work is considered or seems to be "literature", whether or not it is appealing to the one confirming.

Voting will be open for three days. Once the selection has ten confirmations, the process will be over for March's selection.

However, if the selection does not receive enough votes, then we will revert to a "second-chance" month. The five non-winning selections with the most votes from previous months will be put to a short vote and the winner will be our selection.


What is literature for the purposes of this club? A superior work of lasting merit that enriches the mind. Often it is important, challenging, critically acclaimed. It may be from ancient times to today; it may be from anywhere in the world; it may be obscure or famous, short or long; it may be a story, a novel, a play, a poem, an essay or another written form. If you are unsure if a work would be considered literature, just ask!


The floor is now open!

I'll nominate myself as marchioness of March. I nominated Rings of Saturn and Hopkins in the last two months and voted for Saki the month before that.

Thought I was ok (nominated The Wasp Factory in February and voted for The Rings of Saturn, Voted for Beowulf in January) but just realised I missed out on December...must having been doing something else that month, wonder what it was...?

So see you next time .

Nominations are closed. I'm on the edge of my seat wondering who will win.

Here are the nominees:

1) issybird


Being the only nominee this month, that makes issybird the winner - Congrats!

I will start a new vote thread shortly where the winner will post a selection and we will vote on confirming it.
