MobileRead Week in Review: 06/17 - 06/24

Sat, 24 Jun 2017 10:00:02 GMT

It's time again for our roundup on all the stuff we posted on our frontpage this past week. *E-Book General - Reading Recommendations* * July 2017 Book Club Nominations (https://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=287731)



MobileRead July 2017 Book Club Nominations

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 02:23:13 GMT

http://s.mobileread.com/upload/news/2016-06/Free-for-all_04.jpgHelp us select the book that the MobileRead Book Club will read for July, 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 July is: *Free-For-All*. 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 Wind Up Bird Chronicle* by Haruki Murakami, Jay Rubin (Translator) Goodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/8872524-the-wind-up-bird-chronicle) | Amazon US (https://www.amazon.com/Wind-Up-Bird-Chronicle-Vintage-International-ebook/dp/B003XT605Y) / Overdrive (https://www.overdrive.com/search?q=the+wind+up+bird+chronicle) / WorldCat (http://www.worldcat.org/title/wind-up-bird-chronicle/oclc/36510552) Print Length: 607 pages From Goodreads: Japan's most highly regarded novelist now vaults into the first ranks of international fiction writers with this heroically imaginative novel, which is at once a detective story, an account of a disintegrating marriage, and an excavation of the buried secrets of World War II. In a Tokyo suburb a young man named Toru Okada searches for his wife's missing cat. Soon he finds himself looking for his wife as well in a netherworld that lies beneath the placid surface of Tokyo. As these searches intersect, Okada encounters a bizarre group of allies and antagonists: a psychic prostitute; a malevolent yet mediagenic politician; a cheerfully morbid sixteen-year-old-girl; and an aging war veteran who has been permanently changed by the hideous things he witnessed during Japan's forgotten campaign in Manchuria. Gripping, prophetic, suffused with comedy and menace, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle is a tour de force equal in scope to the masterpieces of Mishima and Pynchon.
