    I am new as well, and would love to participate in these BOTM suggestions. I'm not to sure how this works or how the process goes to determine which book is selected.

    Hi Jenny. The process is very simple: each month members put forth their suggestions, then all these are put in a poll thread. Poll stays open for a week and whichever book gets the most votes is our next BOTM. :)

    I'm excited to see the suggestions for December.. I also have started Anna Karenina, but it also has been a very slow progress. Thank you Polly Parrott for informing me how BOTM works.

    I like Anna Karenina but it is going to take me a long time to finish. :oops:

    Suggested theme, literary prize winning books

    Example, books that have won a Pulitzer (or a Nobel Prize, Booker Prize, etc.) or a botm for books that have won any award or prize.

    For August, how about a book title with August in it?
