A lists of books chosen by thebookgroup:
June 2003 - November 2004.
Dec 2004 onwards

For the time being, suggestions for books to read will be put to a poll, to be voted on by the rest of the group. If we get too many or too few suggestions then this may change, however.

In general, nominations open on the 3rd of the month, the poll will appear on the 6th and close on the 9th (dates may vary slightly though.) The top two books each month will be added to a list of 'Current Books' (see top) which includes all the books chosen in the past three months. Please post anything and everything about books on this list.

If you intend to write plot-spoilers in any of the posts you make, please hide them behind a clearly-warned LJ cut tag.
