I recently saw a MoM next to someone's name and found out it means Member of the Month. So where is the info on this? How are they chosen and where is the list posted? I didn't wee anything on the front page.

I'm very curious because I've never seen it before. Is it a new thing?

Member of the Month was started a few months ago. You can check your club communications for past newsletters with the winners. Members are nominated by other members here. You can click on the contact us button at the bottom of any page to nominate someone for MOM.

Lori,  I think you should read "Away" by Amy Bloom next.  Then tell us how good it is.

Thanks,  :)

The MoM icon is new!    I was absolutely shocked to be named MoM in December.   NO one notified me - I found out by getting PM's from friends!   I still have no idea who all nominated me!      It's a great surprize and I feel very honored.

I hadn't seen the icon before now! How nice of them to do that! It was an honor enough to have been chosen by friends on here, but then for them to give us an icon is icing on the cake! Totally cool!

(I do have a question tho. Won't a guy eventually get the honor, and mightn't he feel a little odd being a MoM? :)

Hi guys, I love the little thing of recognition!!!  I was wondering about that as well Sherry lol.  Wonder if they could give it another title? <g>  How about GOTM? Guy of the Month? hehe

Psht. We all know the only males on PBS are R&R. ;)

In union-speak, MoMs are something else entirely, so I'll have to mentally adust my thoughts when I see the icon.

Wasn't the first MoM Steve who frequents the US Postal Regulations forum?

*"Psht. We all know the only males on PBS are R&R. ;)"*

Julien, while my hubby may cook better than most women, do the laundry, and many other womanly things around here, he's about as male as they get. And, I don't think he's ever gonna answer to MoM and certainly trades enough books on here to count. hahahahaha

"*Steve was actually the 2nd MoM, but 1st male MoM :)"*

I forgot Steve! You are right! Wonder if R&R really thought that icon thru!?! Kinda reminds me of the original Book Journal icon! hahahahahaha
