So, I'm going to post a firm version of the rules and book picking guidelines in a few minutes. This post is to open the floor to nominations for books! What would you like us to read?

Remember, since this is the first nominations post, anyone can nominate a book. Please post a comment which contains the title of the book and a blurb. The blurb can be taken from Amazon, Powell's, B&N.com, or any other source you'd like. If you write the blurb yourself, please avoid spoilers.

Also, I highly recommend nominating books even if you've never read them. An interesting cover is reason enough!

Nominations are open until 11:59pm PDT 05/21/06.

Since I'm a Niven fan and he's gonna be at BayCon (next weekend) how about Protector by Larry Niven (link goes to Amazon Reader page with covers & a few sample pages)
Book Description (from back cover)
Phssthpok the Pak had been traveling for most of his thirty-two thousand years. His mission: save, develop, and protect the group of Pak breeders sent out into space some two and a half million years before...

Brennan was a Belter, the product of a fiercely independent, somewhat anarchic society living in, on, and around an outer asteroid belt. The Belters were rebels, one and all, and Brennan was a smuggler. The Belt worlds had been tracking the Pak ship for days -- Brennan figured to meet that ship first...

He was never seen again -- at least not by those alive at the time.
