Unless I am mistaken, Lottery is actually Free-for-All. So if I am correct, it would be a second, not a nomination.

They are not the same thing at all.

Free For All = Nominations by any book club member from any category.

Lottery = a Single club member chosen via lottery (by summiting their name and being chosen at random by Tom) and one of the following options, either: Version 1. The lottery winner chooses a book that we all read or Version 2. The lottery winner chooses a selection of books from which we choose via a poll.

The problem with Lottery is that we don't know who might be participating for that month. So it would be unfair if the lottery was held and new members were not included. Because of this, I would not allow lottery unless some way could be found to make it fair and I doubt that's possible.

Also with Lottery, I believe the winner has to lead the discussion about that month's book.

All members (new or established) may summit their name for the lottery.

The discussion thread proceeds as normal. There are no special requirements.

It may not, but if you read through the nomination process for April 2013 you will see that there was some intrest.

If a Lottery category were to win, I personally would prefer it be option #2.

(IMHO) before Lottery is to be seconded/thirded, I think it needs to be defined if it's going to be #1 or #2. That's why I defined Modern Literature so there would be no discussion as to what I meant.

I've already sent a request to Dazrin to do just that, and to please answer here in the thread.

By Indie, do you mean any books not published by the price fix 6 and their imprints? If it's more publishers then that, can we please have a list of which publisher would be excluded?
