Wow, that was an active nomination thread. We had 29 books nominated. I'm going to take some liberties with the voting and combine two similar books that had close to the same number of nominations into one selection. Hey, I'm a lame-duck coordinator... what are you going to do, fire me? Speaking of coordinators, many thanks to Caitlin McGrath, who will take over in February starting with the nomination thread for March. Now without further ado, here are your choices for February:
