Hi, Bookies:

Unlike the down-to-the-wire April poll, May’s was a blowout: Elizabeth Strout’s The Burgess Boys all the way. This week, our May discussion leader, Assistant Editor Stephanie Sisco of the Real Simple Home Department, will say hello and give us our reading schedule. Then we’ll plunge right into discussing The Burgess Boys next week, as we conclude What Alice Forgot this week.

Oh, and one more piece of big news: Look next week for a giveaway of author-signed copies of one of our favorite books from last year!
