I would suggest something Irish (St. Patrick's Day) or Finnish (St. Urho's Day). I googled "holidays in March", and it brought up a whole list of things.

I added that as a genre option for this month. Unfortunately, it did erase the vote from the other person who voted (which I didn't realize it would happen at the time). Did you happen to be that person? If it was you, would you mind voting again?

Thank yo, gali! I'm sorry for the confusion. I didn't realize that by editing the poll, it would erase all current votes. Now I know for next time. :tiphat:

So...we have a 4-way tie :shock:

How about we do this fairly?
  • March - Holidays in March (apparently there's a “Won't You Be My Neighbor” Day :o :D - got to love Fred Rogers!)
  • April - Science Fiction/Dystopian
  • May - Graphic Novel/Manga
(Since I was the one who voted for Young Adult, I can hold off on that one for now)

Sounds good to me. I opened the forum. :tiphat:

I voted for Science Fiction/Dystopian but don't mind if you choose YA instead. There are Science Fiction/Dystopian YA books as well. :)

That's a good point! I'm good either way - Science Fiction/Dystopian or YA for next month. :D
