Hi, Bookies:

Though it lingered a bit at the start, Cheryl Strayed’s Wild, her memoir about the three months she spent hiking the Pacific Crest Trail—more than 1,000 miles, on her own—outpaced the three other books in our June 2013 poll. Yolanda Wikiel, Real Simple senior editor extraordinaire, our June discussion leader (and my next-door neighbor here at RS), will get reacquainted with you later this week and set our reading schedule. See you then!
