First and foremost, vote here in this thread between now and end of the day on Sunday 28 February -- that's almost two weeks.
Please pick ALL of the books that you MOST WANT TO READ. If that means you list 5 books, so be it; if there are only 3 books here that interest you at all, then only pick 3. Whatever the number is, pick books that you really want to read and discuss with this group.
If this means we choose 6 months of books, that's great. If we choose only 2 that's fine, too.
Try not to pick books that you've already read and forgotten; if there is a nomination for something you're reading now or you vote for something that you have already read or are reading, please open a thread for it RIGHT NOW and share your thoughts before you forget. Even if it's not selected some of us will get to it later and love to be able to look at the thoughts of others. (Or at least make notes to yourself somewhere; I often do that by sending myself e-mail or using the notes function on my phone.)
Some of the books are described in the nomination thread here: http://bookchatcentral.yuku.com/topic/2556/Nominations-are-now-open#.VsOP9ECnwg4
