Hi, Bookies:

I guess there’s no stopping a powerhouse like John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars: It won by a landslide. In fact, I can’t remember a book winning by such a crushing majority of the vote. So The Fault in Our Stars it is, and I’m looking forward to seeing what the buzz is all about. (Do you know that on Amazon, the book has a 5-star rating? And goodreads is hot on its heels with a 4.5-star rating. In a word: wow.) social media editor Rachel Stein will be leading our discussion, so she’ll check in on Friday to say hi and let us know how we’ll break up our reading. Can’t wait!
