MobileRead April 2017 Book Club Nominations

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 00:49:48 GMT

http://s.mobileread.com/upload/news/2016-01/Award_Winners.pngHelp us select the book that the MobileRead Book Club will read for April, 2017. The nominations will run through midnight EST March 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 April is: *Award Winners*. 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) A Cold Day for Murder* by Dana Stabenow Goodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10822505-a-cold-day-for-murder) | Amazon US (https://smile.amazon.com/Cold-Murder-Kate-Shugak-Novels-ebook/dp/B004S87M92?tag=mr060-20) / Author's Website (https://stabenow.com/novels/kate-shugak/a-cold-day-for-murder/) / Audible (http://www.audible.com/pd/Mysteries-Thrillers/A-Cold-Day-for-Murder-Audiobook/B005TKYT5S) / Kobo US (https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/a-cold-day-for-murder-1) Print Length: 173 pages A 1993 Edgar Award winner. From Goodreads: Somewhere in the hinterlands of Alaska, among the millions of sprawling acres that comprise “The Park,” a young National Park Ranger has gone missing. When the detective sent after him also vanishes, the Anchorage DA’s department must turn to their reluctant former investigator, Kate Shugak. Shugak knows The Park because she’s of The Park, an Aleut who left her home village of Niniltna to pursue education, a career, and the righting of wrongs. Kate’s search for the missing men will take her from self-imposed exile back to a life she’d left behind, and face-to-face with people and problems she'd hoped never to confront again. *(2) Three Cheers for Me* by Donald Jack Goodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/33840469-three-cheers-for-me) | Amazon US (https://www.amazon.com/Three-Cheers-Me-Bandy-Papers-ebook/dp/B01G2KE43K/?tag=mr060-20) / Kobo US (https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/three-cheers-for-me) Print Length: 256 pages Stephen Leacock Award winner. From Goodreads: With his disturbingly horse-like face and a pious distaste for strong drink and bad language, young Bartholomew Bandy doesn’t seem cut out for life in the armed services, as we meet him at the start of the First World War. Yet he not only survives the dangers and squalor of the infantry trenches, he positively thrives in the Royal Flying Corps, revealing a surprising aptitude for splitarsing Sopwith[...]
