Well, summer is flying by in this endless COVID year and its time already for nominations for our September COTM selection. Again we have to decide, whether we want to continue with online options or whether we are we ready for a book? Online options might include previous nominees such as Chocolate and Zucchini, Nigella.com or Heidi Swanson, or more comprehensive resources such as the UK Guardian and Telegraph websites. A couple of recent popular book suggestions have been Falastin and Jubilee, but maybe an older book that many of us have on our shelves might also appeal. Or a combination of a book and online resources from a single author?
Whatever you choose, here are your guidelines:
You may nominate as many books/sources as you wish. Please make your nominations with the intent of cooking along and reporting, should one of your suggestions become our COTM. In the case of a book, things to consider would be the availability of the book, in the US and worldwide; how long the book has been out and if libraries have had time to acquire it; the cost of the book. In many places such as mine, libraries still are not open for physical book lending, or have curbside borrowing only while ebook resources may be constrained by demand. In the case of online resources, we might consider whether the resources are available without subscription cost (for example by free registration as with the Guardian/Observer site)
To make a nomination, put the title of the book, blog, or Web site in ALL CAPS. Titles not in all caps will not be counted. At the end of the nomination period, we will vote on the most-nominated books/online resources. Nominations will close on Tuesday, August 18, at 10am EDT.
