    You need to have at least 50 posts to be able to nominate, Ali. If you increase your post count by October 15, your nomination will be taken into account.

    Just to clarify, please nominate an author, not a book.

    Book nominations will be disregarded.

    Hmmm this is tough to choose just one author.

    I think I am going to go with Margaret Atwood

    I would like to nominate Muriel Spark. Thank you.

    The three authors nominated above are also on my list. Hopefully I'll get enough time to read each one in 2013.
