[quote=""lauragill""]What about Trojan War month? There are so many books set in the period.[/quote]

Cool--just pick a month except for February and May, which are taken.

I like this idea very much! Can't think of a theme offhand, but I'll think of something.

I'm still trying to work up a do-able theme. I'm guessing Alan Savage month wouldn't go over very well :D ;) :p :rolleyes:

I'd like to have a classic fiction month, for books that weren't historical when they were written but are historical to us. Is April still available?
