Well, if you're able to participate in the discussion, you're welcome to vote, Jon. Our theme for April was Tales of Tails, Birds or Beasts, and the voting thread is here.

I may wait and see what the winner is as there are some books in that list that I really don't want to read. So I'll see if the winner is one I can read and can get a hold of from Overdrive.

But I'll jump in on the nominations for the next round.

For the next nomination round, I'd like to suggest we choose from the MR Library. That way nobody has to buy anything and whatever book wins will be available for all.

If you look here you will see the various themes that have already been selected for the next few months. Of course, there is nothing stopping anyone from nominating a book available from the PCML for any of these themes - there's certainly enough in there that I'm sure several could be matched.

Then make it for December. That would be a good help since it's Hanukkah and Christmas. Would mean nobody having to buy the winning book.

Many public domain books have been and will probably continue to be nominated and chosen. The book just chosen for April is public domain.

That's not the point. The point is that the book be from the MR library. That the book does not have to be purchased. That the money can go to the holidays instead of another eBook.

We just had a round of theme nominations, I think we should wait till we get closer to the end of this group before we worry about it again. We may decide to change tracks before then anyway.

The point is that you're out of line. I tried to be polite and nonconfrontational, but it clearly didn't work. So ...

It's completely inappropriate for you to barge in now, after a lengthy absence, and start making demands about how the group should be run. What do you think gives you the right to start dictating to everyone else? You want to offer an opinion, fine, you did. Now please drop it.
