February Is Graphic Novel Month for 1book140

More

1book140_icon.JPG I can't decide what's more amazing: That we're already in the ninth month of 1book140, or that it's taken us this long to read a graphic novel. It's a genre about which I'm both entirely ignorant and avidly interested. (How do I square that circle? I'm a parent to young children. I'm lucky to find time to read a cereal box).

To judge by today's tweets, I'm not alone. I've already seen a lot of good books nominated, so I wanted to get our post up before we lost steam. You all know the drill--put your nomination in the comments below. We'll come up with a shortlist in a few days, then start up the discussions on February 6.
