Time to think about our group reads for April and May. Please nominate up to two books, and second as many of the nominations as you like. We’ll have a poll of seconded books in around a week.

I'd like to nominate Heartbreak Tango and The Circle.

Forgive me if they've been done before but I can't seem to find the list of all the books we've covered in Group Reads. Can anyone link us to that? Or maybe I'm thinking of another group?

I would like to nominate A Promise at Dawn by Romain Gary. We read his The Roots of Heaven as a group years ago and I recall it being a good read.

>9 arukiyomi: It is a pinned topic on the Talk list rather than a "useful link" - for me anyway.

As so often happens our poll was inconclusive. Three books had equal votes so I have set up a new poll to pick one of these as our April group read. Please vote for one book only, and vote only once. The remaining two books will go in a separate poll for our May group read.

I'll close the poll in a few days.

Heartbreak Tango was the winner of the poll for our April read and I will set up a thread for this group read in a few days.

One of the remaining two books will be our group read for May. Please vote for one book on the poll below:
