Nominate Books for Book of the Month (see restrictions)

Members of the forum choose and read a new book every month together, and then discuss it. You can nominate a book to be book of the month using the book's page on Bookshelves. Simply click the link that says 'Nominate for book of the month' on the left side of the book's Bookshelves page near the social sharing buttons. Don't be scared to nominate, as you can change your nomination to a different book if you think of something better.

I would like to nominate a book but I haven't a clue how to find the Amazon sales rank of a book. Can someone help? Thanks

When you select a specific book if you scroll down the screen past the "Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought" you will find the product details and the last line is the Amazon ranking - at least that's where it is on my Amazon account. :)

Thanks. I was misunderstanding that point. When I read "have an Amazon sales rank better than 200,000" I thought it was referring to the volume of sales. Now I am clear and would like to nominate the book The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. This is worth the read. Is this where I nominate it?

Are we still nominating then?
I wasn't sure because there was no vote or anything.
I thought it might have changed.

I haven't been able to find where we vote this month either but I thought it was just me. I have trouble finding things on this site.

I nominated for it so I was interested to see how it would go.
There's a banner saying that the November BOTM is Prophase.
I don't know.
I thought they got tired of people not following the rules or something :lol:
Just thought I'd ask. I'm still very interested in this.

The ranking I saw was well above the requirement.
