Exclamation 2011 Book Chats by Genre Schedule

I've tallied the votes. I eliminated any genre that had only negative votes, definitely included any genre that had more positive than negative votes, and included all genres that were neutral (either negative votes outweighed by positive votes or no votes either way). Since we have a tradition of reading a holiday-theme book in December, I used that as our December genre.

So here's the genre list for 2011, by month. Each month, I'll ask for nominations within the specified genre, and we'll draw at random from all nominations.

January - Classics
February - Romance (I hate everybody who voted for Romance, by the way )
March - Historical Fiction
April - Humor
May - Poetry
June - Literary Fiction
July - Chick Lit
August - Autobiography/Memoir
September - Children's/Young Adult
October - Mystery/Suspense
November - Informational Non-Fiction
December - Holiday

I hope all our regulars will join us for the genre-based chats each month, and that we'll see some more TBC members drop in and chat with us too!

I plan to keep count of my pages read for 2011! We can do a sticky and anyone who wants to participate can update theirs as we go! I think it will be interesting to see how many there are personally!
