Hi, Bookies:

If you haven’t voted for our March book yet, it’s time: The poll closes this Sunday, February 23, at 11:59 p.m. ET. Need a refresher on our choices? Check them out below.


The Fault in Our Stars, by John Green

Green’s blockbuster best-seller about two teens who fall in love under extraordinary circumstances—a former book club contender—is equal parts poignant, thrilling, and fun. Read it before the film version’s June 6 release.

The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, by Michael Chabon

Before Wonder Boys, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, and Telegraph Avenue, there was Chabon’s debut novel about a young man who falls into a strange love triangle as he struggles to find his place—anywhere but in his father’s shady business.

Swamplandia!, by Karen Russell

A declining alligator-wresting theme park serves as the fantastical setting for Russell’s first novel, in which a young girl tries to keep her family together in the face of threats both real (her Floridian family’s impending bankruptcy) and otherworldly (her sister’s elopement with a ghost).

The Princess Bride, by William Goldman

Haven’t yet read Goldman’s beloved tale of a princess, the pirate she loves, and the various swordsmen, giants, plotters, schemers, and double-crossers who populate her native Florin and its rival, Guilder? Inconceivable!
