Yeah, t know exactly what she means, though. One of the first things I do is turn down the temperature when I walk into a hotel room. But some times that doesn't work. Sounds like a good V&R thread!

On book prices and availability. Yes, it's a problem, and one we all need to watch out for. Library wait lists can often preclude that as a solution, unfortunately. But this is exactly why we have somewhat longer to acquire and read. And the one year old requirement is also to help address both price and library availability.

The one year old requirement is a guideline now (recommendation). Use common sense.

My second nomination: Everyone Brave Is Forgiven, by Chris Cleave.

Quote:
The instant New York Times bestseller from Chris Cleave—the unforgettable novel about three lives entangled during World War II, told “with dazzling prose, sharp English wit, and compassion…a powerful portrait of war’s effects on those who fight and those left behind” (People, Book of the Week).

London, 1939. The day war is declared, Mary North leaves finishing school unfinished, goes straight to the War Office, and signs up. Tom Shaw decides to ignore the war—until he learns his roommate Alistair Heath has unexpectedly enlisted. Then the conflict can no longer be avoided. Young, bright, and brave, Mary is certain she’d be a marvelous spy. When she is—bewilderingly—made a teacher, she finds herself defying prejudice to protect the children her country would rather forget. Tom, meanwhile, finds that he will do anything for Mary.

And when Mary and Alistair meet, it is love, as well as war, that will test them in ways they could not have imagined, entangling three lives in violence and passion, friendship and deception, inexorably shaping their hopes and dreams.

Set in London during the years of 1939–1942, when citizens had slim hope of survival, much less victory; and on the strategic island of Malta, which was daily devastated by the Axis barrage, Everyone Brave is Forgiven features little-known history and a perfect wartime love story inspired by the real-life love letters between Chris Cleave’s grandparents. This dazzling novel dares us to understand that, against the great theater of world events, it is the intimate losses, the small battles, the daily human triumphs that change us most.

Frankly, I'm only participating in this if I can get the book at the library (or I already have it)... I’ve tried to limit myself to buying ebooks under $3, though there have been a few exceptions.

All of the non-fiction nominations sound at least worth a try this month, it's the prices and lack of library access that's keeping me from supporting most of them.

Well, I'm a bit concerned because so much of the quality of this book will depend on the quality of the translator, plus I'm not a huge manga fan, but it deserves to get through to the vote. I'll use my last ticket to third All You Need Is Kill.
