Nominations Are Open!

Nomination Time Again Ladies! Yes, it’s that time to nominate a book for the month for February.  The theme for the February’s book nominations will be…A book about people and/or by a black author. Any genre such as fiction, non-fiction or YA.  Since February is Black History Month let’s celebrate, read and talk about us!

Mocha Girls Read uses the democratic system for monthly book selections. What do I need to do? In the comments section below, tell us what you want to read next.  (Must fit the theme) How many books can I nominate? Just pick 1 of your favorite books off your wish list. Then what? We will put the list of nominations up for everyone to vote on.  Once the voting is over the winner will be selected as the book for February. What if there is a tie? We will put the two books to a head to head competition. The two books will be re-posted and everyone will be able to vote again but only in a 48 hour window of time. When do the nominations start and end? The nominations start today and will close on January 16, 2012 at midnight.

Take out your list ladies and let us know what you want to read next. You can also email your nominations to us at  If you need some ideas on A Book about Us, here are some suggestions. Click the book covers to read a synopsis and the reviews of the books.









Let the nominations begin! I am looking forward to seeing what everyone is going to come up with.
