Hi, Bookies:

It was wild for a while, what with one book in the lead and then another and three of our four authors weighing in from their Facebook pages. But in the end, Mary Karr’s acclaimed memoir of her childhood in east Texas, The Liars’ Club, was our winner. This Friday, Real Simple Deputy Editor Danielle Claro makes her debut as a discussion leader (well, at least she’ll say hi and give us our marching orders). I’ve been wanting to read this book for a long time, so can’t wait! Hope you’re looking forward to it too.
