Added September 2015 vote link.

If you haven't checked out the proposed 2016 category order I have included it in the first post along with a link for comments if you want to give some before it is set.

Also, this thread does get regular updates despite not being bumped.

Mid-year bump.

For anyone who is interested here are some stats thru June 2016:
  • The first MR Book Club selection was in November 2008.
  • There were 2 months with multiple selections (October 2009, March 2010)
  • There have been 94 different selections (92 months plus 2 months with 2 selections)
  • There have been 85 unique authors selected
  • There have been 8 authors selected multiple times (E.M. Forster has been selected 3 times)
  • There have been 25 different categories used (1 more will be added this year, 2 if "Thriller, Suspense, & Crime" is counted.)

If I'm counting right, that means December's vote will be for our 100th book. Is that right?

That's the way I count it. October's selection will make 8 complete years.

This thread has been up since 2014 and no one could tell me that I spelled All Quiet on the Western Front wrong? Sheesh!

October's selection of The Loved One by Evelyn Waugh makes 8 complete years of the MR Book Club!

Umm, there's the pesky matter of the author's name as well. Or is that what you meant?

And I want to add a hearty thank you for being official record keeper!

Did not notice that. Oops. In my defense, the old spelling and incorrect author name came from the discussion thread title. I will fix the author name when I get to my desktop. Thanks for the help!

And in my defense, the MobileRead software truncated the author's name, which is one reason I don't usually put the author's name in the title. Fixed now, by removing the author's name from the thread title.

This thread is quite old and may contain outdated information. We recommend that you begin a new discussion if you like to talk about a similar topic. Of course, you may also proceed and reply here.
Ya, ya, ya. I know.

I have updated the lists above for April 2017 and am trying out some different formatting in the first couple posts and want some feedback.

I have been adding links to the nomination and voting threads since I find that information useful when a category comes back around. But those links added a lot of clutter to the lists. Hopefully the new formatting helps reduce that.
  • Does the new formatting work for everyone else?
  • Is there any value to the vote/nomination links or should I remove them?
  • Is my general information summary accurate and clear?
  • Did I miss anything?
  • Any other suggestions?
