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.
Well, we do have a nomination for Science Fiction, so go give it a second and then a third and then a winning set of votes.

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.
I think there's quite a few books in the MR library that are under 50 years old as some authors have donated works to the public domain. I'm thinking of authors like Peter Watts, Cory Doctorow and Charles Stross, all of which have books in the MR library.

Not that those authors wouldn't be worthy of discussion, but I don't think it was the intent of the nomination to include those works.

I'm late to the party so I'll nominate -

Pervert Books

Third in a Series

Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Romance/Travel/1947-1983/Vampire/Steampunk


Spoiler:
I'm kidding!

My real nominations are:

Philosophy

Foreign (Books originally written in a language other than English)

And, what the heck, let's try Travel/Adventure again too

Hooray!

I know where one of my votes is going for the poll. When I saw sun surfer's (real) nomination of "Philosophy", I regretted that I had no votes left to second or third it. Thanks sun surfer, caleb72, and jemc!
