It is nearly time to start the reading for August's BOM selection, so we need to start taking volunteers for someome to lead September's BOM discussion. If you are interested just post here or PM me to let me know, so you can start deciding how you want to organize your month.

Good idea, Jennifer! This will give the volunteer two weeks to think about a theme. I can't wait for August to get here. I'm excited that next month's choice sounds good, plus it's a book I haven't already read. ;-)

Who put Black Ships on the list? I thought the one who suggested the winning title would lead the next month. Or was I dreaming again?

Genie I think that was Hannah that picked that one.  I don't remember it being said the winner of last month picks the next months but I do think its a good idea (just as long as the same person doesn't keep having to do it- so everyone that wants to gets a turn).

Well, the book I nominated for July was the one selected, but I just volunteered to host September's BOM. Anyone who is interested in hosting is more than welcome to do so.

If Hannah doesn't step forward, I'll gladly volunteer.

Hi everyone,

I'm going to pass to lead September. I'll be in the midst of settling down in a new place and starting a new semester so I don't want to agree and then flake out on you lol!

Go for it Genie!

Looks like it's Genie!  Can't wait to hear the theme you decide on.

No problem, Hannah. Would everyone like me to post now so that you have plenty of time to order? I think some folks ran into delays with ordering the August BOM. By "now," I actually mean sometime over the weekend.

Yes, I'll post a theme on Friday, if I get a break. Otherwise, look for it on Saturday. Oh, heck, I'm on lunch. I'll post it now.
