MobileRead October 2017 Book Club Nominations

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 01:22:25 GMT

http://s.mobileread.com/upload/news/2011-12/MobileRead_Question_Mark_1.png*MobileRead Book Club October 2017 Nominations* Help us select the next book that the MobileRead Book Club will read for October, 2017. The nominations will run through midnight EDT September 26 or until 10 books have made the list. The poll will then be posted and will remain open for five days. Book selection category for October is: *Humor* In order 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) England, Their England* by A.G. Macdonell [issybird, JSWolf, CRussel] Goodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/847987.England_Their_England?ac=1&from_search=true) | Faded Page (http://www.fadedpage.com/showbook.php?pid=20110106) Print Length: 114 pages From Goodreads: Banished from his native Scotland by a curious clause in his father’s will, Donald Cameron moves to London and decides to conduct a study of the English people; a strange race who, he is told, have built an entire national identity around a reverence for team spirit and the memory of Lord Nelson.... What follows is one of the funniest social satires ever written. Whether Cameron is haplessly participating in a village cricket match, being shown around an exclusive golf course, or trying to watch a rugby match in the thick London fog, his affectionately bemused portrait of his new countrymen is a joy to read. Reminiscent of the gentle wit of P. G. Wodehouse and Jerome K. Jerome, England, Their England offers a delightful portrait of Britain in the 1920s.
