August Is Ray Bradbury Month at 1book140

1book140_icon.JPG

When Ray Bradbury died last month, the 1book140 faithful started lobbying for a month dedicated to the renowned science-fiction author. We decided to go with beach reads for July, and read the excellent, engaging, thought-provoking Magicians by Lev Grossman. But now that a new month is approaching, we're going to tackle Bradbury.

This will work like our Dickens month back in March, the only other time we've devoted a month to a single author: Nominate your favorite Bradbury book or short-story collection in the comments on this post, and then we'll vote on which one to read. Nominations are open from now until Friday at 5 pm Eastern. We'll post the shortlist and begin voting on Monday, July 30th, then close voting on Wednesday, August 1st, and begin reading/discussing on Monday, August 6th.

Happy reading!
