Thu, 20 Apr 2017 03:46:32 GMTThe time has come to discuss the April 2017 MobileRead Book Club selection, *A Cold Day for Murder* by Dana Stabenow. What did you think?
Thu, 20 Apr 2017 03:44:18 GMThttp://s.mobileread.com/upload/news/2016-01/Science_Fiction.pngHelp us select the book that the MobileRead Book Club will read for May, 2017. The nominations will run through midnight EST April 26 or until 10 books have made the list. The poll will then be posted and will remain open for five days. The book selection category for May is: *Science Fiction*. For a book to be included in the poll it needs THREE NOMINATIONS (original nomination, a second and a third). How Does This Work? The Mobile Read Book Club (MRBC) is an informal club that requires nothing of you. Each month a book is selected by polling. On the last week of that month a discussion thread is started for the book. If you want to participate feel free. There is no need to "join" or sign up. All are welcome. How Does a Book Get Selected? Each book that is nominated will be listed in a poll at the end of the nomination period. The book that polls the most votes will be the official selection. How Many Nominations Can I Make? Each participant has 3 nominations. You can nominate a new book for consideration or nominate (second, third) one that has already been nominated by another person. How Do I Nominate a Book? Please just post a message with your nomination. If you are the FIRST to nominate a book, please try to provide an abstract to the book so others may consider their level of interest. How Do I Know What Has Been Nominated? Just follow the thread. This message will be updated with the status of the nominations as often as I can. If one is missed, please just post a message with a multi-quote of the 3 nominations and it will be added to the list ASAP. When is the Poll? The poll thread will open at the end of the nomination period, or once there have been 10 books with 3 nominations each. At that time a link to the initial poll thread will be posted here and this thread will be closed. The floor is open to nominations. Please comment if you discover a nomination is not available as an ebook in your area. *Official choices with three nominations each:* *(1) In Times Like These: A Time Travel Adventure* by Nathan van Coops Goodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23444266-in-times-like-these) | Amazon US (https://www.amazon.com/Times-Like-These-Travel-Adventure-ebook/dp/B00FCCT6UQ/) / Barnes & Noble (http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/in-times-like-these-nathan-van-coops/1117025410?ean=2940153512563) / Kobo US (https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/in-times-like-these-9) Print Length: 384 pages From Goodreads: "We broke something.

Mon, 17 Apr 2017 09:36:11 GMTHi there, it's easy to find books with 320ish pages. Therefore I'm asking for book series with less than 250 pages. I've discovered the Kate Shugak series, and since my leisure time is going to shrink I'm asking for this recommendation.
