So, the list is long and we haven't even started yet. But I want to take this opportunity to ask that those of you who are planning on participating (for real, now) start perusing the list and then comment to this post telling me that you want to participate (officially) and then give me your top three choices out of the books we've listed, and two choices for short stories/poems/etc. All of the choices have to be books you've never read before. (You can pick your own suggestion if it's also something you've never read.) 5 nominations total.
I will be brave and post mine first. But you can wait, because I'm sure we'll have more to follow.
