MobileRead August 2017 Book Club Nominations

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 03:48:00 GMT

http://s.mobileread.com/upload/news/2017-01/Mystery_Scene_of_the_Crime.pngHelp us select the book that the MobileRead Book Club will read for August, 2017. The nominations will run through midnight EST July 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 August is: *Thriller, Suspense, & Crime*. 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) The Great Impersonation* by E. Phillips OppenheimGoodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23341702-the-great-impersonation) | Amazon US (https://www.amazon.com/Great-Impersonation-Edward-Phillips-Oppenheim-ebook/dp/B00846S7AC/ref=la_B0028EEB8S_1_1?tag=mr060-20&s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1500732888&sr=1-1&refinements=p_82%3AB0028EEB8S) / Patricia Clark Memorial Library:ePub (https://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=120090&highlight=Great+impersonation) Print Length: 260 pages From Goodreads: The Great Impersonation is probably the most famous spy novel of all time. Allen Dulles put it at the top of all spy novels for its virtuosity. It is marvelous reading with its fast-moving plot, its descriptions of the rich life of English aristocrats before the Great War, and its bold characters. Besides the Kaiser and a whole host of Dukes, Duchesses, Ambassadors, German agents and silly young Englishmen, there's the Princess Eiderstrom, "one of the most passionate women in Europe," desperately in love with Leopold; Sir Everard's insane wife who has vowed to kill him if he should ever return home; and a rollicking finale. *(2) The Neon Rain* by James Lee BurkeGoodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/8665664-the-neon-rain) Print Length: 324 pages From Amazon: From New York Times bestselling author James Lee Burke comes his definitive, must-read first title in his famous Dectective [sic] David Robicheaux series. New Orleans Detective Dave Robicheaux has fought too many battles: in Vietnam, with police brass, with killers and hustlers, and the bottle. Lost without his wife's love, Robicheaux haunts the intense and heady French Quarter—the place he calls home, and the place that nearly destroys him when he beomes involved in the case of a young prostitute whose body is found in a bayou. Thrust into the seedy world of drug lords and arms smugglers, Robicheaux must face down the criminal underworld and come to terms with his[...]
