      Hello everyone,
       
      The them for the next BGO Book Group read is... Humour.
       
      I think that is a pretty open subject so please nominate a book and explain why you think it makes a good group read.

      I am kicking off two BGO Book Group Reads today. They will start concurrently but it will take longer to decide on the second read...
       
      Please can we have your nominations for the First BGO Book Group read of 2014?
       
      The subject of this read is Cookery.
       
      But what you choose to nominate is up to you. You might choose to recommend a favourite cookery book (or one you want to try) from which readers could try recipes and discuss them. Or you might want to recommend a book that is about cookery in a more abstract sense. Or perhaps a biography about a chef.
       
      Please post your nominations here. It is always a good idea to give a reason for your nomination and this time and it is probably necessary to suggest the context for the read . You don't need to post much, a couple of lines will do.
       
      If you like a nomination please second it.
       
      All nominations that are seconded will go forward to a vote.
       
      If you are new to BGO or have not been involved in a BGO read before, please see this thread  http://www.bookgroup...-bgo-bookgroup/ for some background.
       
      And if you have any questions please post them.

      The subject of this read is Sherlock Holmes. But what you choose to nominate is up to you. You might choose one of the Sherlock Holmes novels, or one of the short stories. Perhaps a collection of the short stories or something about Sherlock Holmes, fiction or non-fiction. It's up to you.
