July 2013's *Category* Nominations.

The June 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 7 days or 21 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:
The 2013 MobileRead Book Club Monthly Categories
  • January: Second Chance (2nd place selections from the previous 11 months)
  • February Romance
  • March Travel/Adventure
  • April Classics
  • May Mystery/Thriller
  • June Award Winners
The 2012 Categories (for reference purposes):

Spoiler:
January — RunnerUp (no nominations, a vote of all the runners-up nominations from the last 11 months)
February — Romance
March — Thriller/Suspense
April — Humour
May — Fantasy
June — Classic
July — Mystery/Crime
August — FreeForAll
September — NonFiction
October — Horror
November — Science Fiction
December — Classic



The Nominations for July's Category are now closed.

Now that I think about it, maybe October is better for science fiction then November. Remember on Halloween we had the famous War of the Worlds radio drama done by Orson Wells and cast. It was done on Halloween. Sure it was meant to scare, but it was just a science fiction story.

Anyway, here goes.

Nominations...
1. Science Fiction
2. Fantasy
3. Modern Literature (written within the last 10 years)

And before we get into any more discussions like last time, let's not nominate anything like Mystery/Thriller and Travel/Adventure that do not go together. Just keep it to one category and please define if need be.

Sorry, Science Fiction and Fantasy are already nominated. Plus, we've had a discussion already that they are two different categories.

But I will second Free-for-All.

Not valid. Both categories are already nominated and they do not go together. There is not enough overlap to work.

It means Science Fiction and/or Fantasy. So you can nominate just Sci-Fi, just Fantasy, or a combination.

And quite frankly, on a personal note, as much as I would love to have a month dedicated to each like we've had in the past, if doing this combo is the only way I'll get my favorite genres in then so be it.

Please Jon, for the sake of peace and harmony, don't continue arguing about it. It is not breaking any official book club rules, and in fact, the majority of members voted that there can be duplicate genres.

But to be realistic, Science Fiction and Fantasy are already taken. I nominated both of them. I'm just trying to get another combination category that doesn't work to go away. Besides, did you not read in the Science Fiction month that it was said that they do not go together? This is something I feel is wrong to allow categories to be nominated twice. We'll have to wait for an official ruling.
