Good catch. I, Robot was nominated in December 2012, losing to Ethan Frome in the run-off, and then losing to Persuasion in the January 2013 second chance poll. So it can't be nominated for April.
Oh - you're right. I really thought we must have gone through six months and my brain was lagging behind.

I nominate a modern classic
Simone de Beauvoir ' All men are mortal'.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simone_de_Beauvoir

Spoiler:
'All Men Are Mortal' is a captivating exemplum of the existentialist credo. A beautiful and accomplished your actress revives a downcast stranger at a French resort. He becomes thoroughy attached to her at first and confides a terrifying truth; he is immortal. At this point, the power in their relationship shifts. She can think of nothing greater than having her performances remembered forever. She, too, will then become immortal. But having been resuscitated into enjoying life again, this former medieval ruler starts breaking free from her grasp and all notions of morality.

I couldn't find it as ebook.
This one looks interesting. I'd second it in a heartbeat if I could find an ebook edition. It was made into a film in 1995.

I'll second All Men Are Mortal. I don't mind reading a paperback and it sounds great.

I also would love to read Les Miserables and was even considering trying to tackle it sometime this year anyway, but, now I'm out of noms.

All Men Are Mortal looks so interesting, I'll also be willing to read it in paper as well. Seems a crime that there's no ebook. I'll be very pleased if this one becomes the first non-ebook (to my knowledge) to win.

In regards to paperback/ebook... I thought the rule was that the ebook had to be available in the country of the first nomination?
