Suggestions for January 2009 Book of the Month

Post by diamondlil » Sat November 15th, 2008, 5:25 am

January 2009! Can you believe it?

Whilst it is a New Year so we should probably be having a theme of something to do with new, instead we are going to have a theme of Recycled Nominations!

Is there a book that you have nominated previously on either site, that didn't win, but that you really want to have as book of the month? This is a chance to nominate all those great reads that we have missed previously!

The thread for suggestions will close on 20 November.

I've already read it and I highly recommend it to others.
