I don't think it's any more ridiculous than lottery where anyone whom we don't really know anything about gets to pick some books. It could be someone from a publishing company flogging their books at that point. I'd rather pick a forumer we know and know something about things that interest them. orlok, whom I previously suggested and Nyssa have reasonably diverse tastes and I am pretty certain of them giving us an interesting selection of books to read

It's fiction that is relatively recent. I would hope that it is something that may not fall neatly into other categories (although there may be some overlap with award winners (as long as the award winners aren't Hugo or Nebula (unless they are really outstanding books (and ultimately it is up to the nominations/voting to decide.))))
What what is the time frame? There has to be a cutoff point to say that something is too old. That's what I was looking for.

I have to agree. I hope my nomination of Classics is a great big fail.

Specifying that a book in the MobileRead library should be at least 50 years old to qualify for a MobileRead Classic month is a bit redundant. All the classics in the MobileRead library are at least 50 years old.

You're probably right. I thought that there may be some books that are in the MR library that are less then 50 years old.

Edit:

For example, the following shouldn't be allowed, even though someone may consider it a "classic" in regards to health:

It's been seconded and thirded, so at this point it is up to the nomination/voting process.

Science Fiction was in August; is it permitted to cast a vote for the same category as the previous month?

Yes. There was a vote last year to allow the repetition of genres. I personally voted against it, as I'd like as much variety as possible, but there you go.

Like Nyssa, I was totally against it, but we were outvoted. I thought of nominating Science Fiction and Non-Fiction every month. Come to think of it, that wouldn't be a bad idea.
