I meant to ask after the last time we had a run-off, but what do all of you think- one day or two days for run-offs?

One day is what we've done since the beginning of the club, but two days gives a little more time to make sure no one that might want to vote misses it. It does however push us knowing the month's selection back yet another day.

Personally I think I'd lean towards two days now as a safer amount, but I'd be equally fine keeping it at one too.

Great; then barring any other posts on the matter we'll set any future run-offs for two days.

-

Now that all our summer selections have been chosen, it's a good time to open up discussion on autumn topic nominations.


This will cover the months of October, November and December. Basically, you can make suggestions in two ways:

-The first is to offer general suggestions just to put them out there/discuss them/bat them around, with no specific date or implementation in mind.

-The second is to make a more formal nomination for a particular topic for the autumn season. You can just suggest the topic and it will be slotted into the soonest month not already taken, or you can request it for a particular month in the season.

Alright, seeing no suggestions for October, I’ll nominate one of my own and call it ‘Fun, Fun, Fun’ . This is anything to do with the idea of ‘fun’, which is often not something one thinks of in relation to literary books, so it could be an interesting, different and perhaps even revelatory month. It could be a book you think looks (or was) fun to read, a book that somehow seems to have fun in it from title or from content, a book that seems to have some light-hearted or joyful aspect, or something else as the topic is open to interpretation.

That’s an excellent idea!

Sounds good to me. I totally forgot that we were supposed to post ideas!

I haven’t had enough time with a non-mobile-phone computer since the vote was over to format the discussion thread OP as normally (and doing it on a phone can be a bit of a horror) so I’m going to post a bare bones discussion thread OP just to get it up and edit the extra info in when I can.

My new job is sapping literally all my time. I am having to sit out both book clubs, at least this month. If i have any good theme ideas I will try and toss them out!

That’s a pity that work is sapping your free time but good luck on your new job and I do hope you’re enjoying it. We’ll be looking forward to when your free time opens back up, though if you just so happen to get a hankering this month’s selection is an easy read.

Also, yes, if you (or anyone else) come up with any good theme ideas please toss them to us!

Any ideas for November’s topic?

Edit- Going once, going twice... I'll be putting up the nominations thread in the next hour or so and if I don't have any suggestions by then I'll choose the topic! (not that I mind, but it's always great to have others' input )

I’m open to lots of ideas. I am missing our regional months for some extra diversity so I’ve been considering themes for books with an international emphasis. There’s the obvious books that have been translated into English as one idea, but I am trying to think of something more creative and fun.

Bookworm_Girl, well have I got the topic for you! Heh, just kidding, but it's wild that you posted that as I was writing the rest of this post (I only saw your post just before I posted), since as you'll see we were definitely on the same wavelength:

All right, I'm going to cart out and nominate an old topic that I'd even suggested we leave be because of its complexity: Journey around the World.

The reason for this about-face for this month is simple- Dazrin's stats. He has kindly done all the legwork of listing all the countries we've read books from over our history, which work was what made the category complex.

Also, Region was always a popular category and this one is along the same line but easier because no pre-vote.

That said, I'm completely fine going with something different or some other international-flavoured topic if you'd prefer since I just nominated the last topic... but I'd need it asap.
